Q. 9Y/16Lb spaniel/shitzu mix on temaril-p.(skin). Since on she drinks more, off balance and breathing pants deeply. Tired on walks. Is this normal on Rx

Answered By

A. Tmearil-P can cause side effects such as changes in urination/drinking, panting, tremors and muscle weakness. If the symptoms are severe it is best to contact your treating veterinarian so that the dosage can be adjusted to try and help these side effects. If the symptoms are very severe (such as inability to walk, seizure or loss of consciousness) or your dog is showing signs of major distress, it is best to seek veterinary care immediately.
