Relief Shampoo (Pramoxine HCI)

Pet Size

Don't know your pet's weight?

If you can't get them on the scale, try this super simple method:

  1. Weigh yourself.
  2. Weigh yourself holding your pet.
  3. Subtract the two numbers to get their weight.

Too heavy to hold? Your vet will weigh them if you ask (or may already have it on file if you call).


No Prescription Required

    Frequently Asked Questions about Relief Shampoo (Pramoxine HCI)

    What is pramoxine HCl used for?

    Pramoxine HCl is commonly used as a topical medication to relieve itching and minor skin irritations, such as insect bites, rashes, and minor burns. It works by numbing the skin and temporarily alleviating discomfort.

    Is pramoxine HCl safe for cats?

    Pramoxine HCl is generally safe for use in cats, but it's important to consult with a veterinarian before using any medication on your pet. They can provide guidance on proper dosage and ensure that there are no contraindications or potential risks specific to your cat's health.

    Is pramoxine hydrochloride the same as hydrocortisone?

    No, pramoxine hydrochloride and hydrocortisone are different medications with different mechanisms of action. Pramoxine is a local anesthetic that temporarily numbs the skin to relieve itching and pain, while hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid that reduces inflammation and suppresses the immune response. They may be used for similar purposes but function differently.

    What are the side effects of pramoxine?

    Common side effects of pramoxine include mild skin irritation or redness at the application site. However, serious side effects are rare. If you notice any unusual symptoms or reactions in your pet after using pramoxine, contact your veterinarian immediately.

    Does pramoxine stop itching?

    Yes, pramoxine is effective at temporarily relieving itching by numbing the skin. It provides fast-acting relief for minor skin irritations, insect bites, and other causes of itching.

    How fast does pramoxine work?

    Pramoxine typically begins to work within a few minutes after application. Its numbing effect helps alleviate itching and discomfort quickly, providing relief to your pet.

    Is pramoxine a steroid?

    No, pramoxine is not a steroid. It belongs to a class of medications known as local anesthetics, which work by blocking nerve signals in the skin to reduce pain and itching. Unlike steroids, pramoxine does not have anti-inflammatory properties.

    Does pramoxine require a prescription?

    Pramoxine is available over-the-counter in many forms, such as creams, gels, and sprays, and typically does not require a prescription for use in pets. However, it's always best to consult with a veterinarian before administering any medication to your pet to ensure proper dosage and suitability for their condition.
