Using Two Medications for Dog Cough
My dog is on Temeril-P for bronchitis, but still coughs a couple times a day. Can I give cough suppressant Tussigon also?
Temeril-P (trimeprazine with prednisolone) is a medication that is often used to treat bronchitis and other respiratory conditions in dogs. It has both antipruritic (anti-itch) and anti-inflammatory properties.
Tussigon (hydrocodone bitartrate and homatropine methylbromide) is a prescription cough suppressant for dogs. It contains an opioid (hydrocodone) that may help control coughing.
However, you should never administer any medications without consulting your veterinarian first. They will be able to determine if it is safe to use both medications together and provide guidance on the appropriate dosage and treatment plan for your dog's specific condition. Mixing medications without proper guidance can lead to potentially harmful interactions or side effects.
