If your pet suffers from gastrointestinal (GI) disorders such as reflux, ulcers, and gastritis, Famotidine can help to treat and manage his/her problems.

What is Famotidine? This is a medication that is administered by mouth when your pet has certain digestive disorders such as gastritis (stomach inflammation), ulcers, and reflux.

What are the benefits of Famotidine?
  • Can help treat multiple digestive disorders of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract including ulcers.
  • Reduces stomach acid by decreasing production of acid.
  • Also aids in the treatment of reflux and gastritis.

Formulated for:Dogs and cats can take Famotidine.

How is this medication given?Give all medication orally based on your veterinarians prescribed directions. If you do not understand how to use Famotidine correctly, call your veterinarian for further instructions.

How does this medication work? Famotidine blocks the production of histamine in the body. Histamine is a chemical that leads to acid production in the body so acid production is decreased when this chemical is blocked.

What results can I expect? Famotidine does not cure gastrointestinal (GI) disorders such as ulcers, gastritis, or reflux but it can help decrease symptoms and help your pet to feel better. Symptoms are usually relieved quickly once Famotidine is given.

What form(s) does Famotidine come in? Tablets. An injectable form of this medication is sometimes used by veterinarians.

Generic Name:Famotidine (Common Drug Name)

Common Brand Name:Pepcid

Dose and Administration:Famotidine is administered by mouth. Always follow your veterinarians prescribed directions. You can give a dose as soon as you remember if you miss one but never double dose. Most veterinarians prescribe Famotidine to be given one to two times daily. Do not share Famotidine with other pets unless your veterinarian instructs you to. If you do not understand how to administer Famotidine to your pet properly, consult with your veterinarian.

Uses:Famotidine is prescribed to help pets who suffer from a variety of digestive disorders including ulcers, gastritis, and reflux.

Possible Side Effects: Famotidine is generally tolerated very well. Loss of appetite and lethargy have been reported though. Some pets may have an allergy to Famotidine and can suffer a true allergic reaction if they take Famotidine. Other side effects may occur.

If your pet appears ill while he/she is taking Famotidine, call your veterinarian as soon as possible for further advice.

Drug and Food Interactions: Discuss all medications and supplements your pet is taking with your veterinarian prior to giving Famotidine. Some interactions have been reported with other antacids, metoclopramide, sucralfate, digoxin, and ketoconazole. Other interactions are possible.

Famotidine should be given 2 hours prior to or after other medications have been given unless your veterinarian instructs you differently.

Precautions :< /b>If your pet has an allergy to Famotidine or other histamine blockers, he/she cannot receive this medication. Give Famotidine with extreme caution in older animals, animals with heart, liver, or kidney disease, or pregnant animals. Famotidine can sometimes cause a low white blood cell count especially in animals that are taking other bone marrow suppressing drugs such as azathioprine.

Stomach acid production may increase temporarily when Famotidine is discontinued.

Storage :< /b>Store in a place out of reach from children and pets at room temperature.
