What is Famotidine Compounded?

Famotidine Compounded is a non-prescription medication used in dogs and cats to reduce the amount of stomach acid being produced. Although Famotidine is not FDA-approved for use in veterinary medicine, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to prescribe this medication for dogs and cats. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Famotidine Compounded requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Dogs & Cats

  • Useful in the treatment and prevention of gastric (stomach) and intestinal ulcers
  • Helps heal ulcers that are already present
How it Works:

Famotidine blocks H-2 receptors from secreting gastric acids into the stomach. Blocking these receptors prevents ulcers from forming and also helps present ulcers time to heal.

Cautions:

Famotidine should be used with caution in pets that are pregnant or pets with heart, kidney, or liver disease.

What is a Compounded Medication?

A compounded medication is the creation of a particular medication to fit the unique needs of a patient, including changing the form of the medication (e.g., from a solid pill to a liquid) for a variety reasons (e.g., to make it easier to take, to avoid a non-essential ingredient, to obtain the exact dose needed, adding favorite flavors).

If you are having difficulty giving your pet prescribed medication or need to find a discontinued medication, 1-800-PetMeds offers compounding services on select medications. We can prepare the following: (1) custom strength quantities of a medication (as capsules, liquid, chewable tablets, or transdermal (absorbed through the skin); (2) dosage forms to mask bitter or unpleasant taste (such as capsules or chewable tablets that can also be flavored); (3) dosage forms to make it easier to dose your pet such as a transdermal or liquid (that can also be flavored); and (4) discontinued products such as cisapride or DES.

Q&A

With what liquid is famotidine compounded? What is its shelf life? why is it not recommended for cats (the pills are listed for cats.)?

Asked by: Emma
Hello Emma, Famotidine is compounded with a non-harmful, inactive liquid. The exact ingredients depend on the compounding pharmacy. The shelf life will also depend, but it is not recommended to use beyond the expiration date given. As with any liquid medication, it is important to shake well before each use. This is safe to use in dogs and cats (as are the pills)...that may have been an error on the website. Sorry for the confusion! Hope this helps. Thanks

My vet prescribed the compounded Famotidine 10 mg/ml in the 30 ml size. However the 60 ml size is much cheaper. How long is compounded Famotidine good for if kept refrigerated? 

Asked by: Julie07
Storage should be room temperature and can be used up to the "beyond use date" or expiration date.

Do or can you make a 2.5ml 

Asked by: ellen
No, we do not make Famotidine in a 2.5 mg/mL liquid. However, you can give your pet 0.5 mL of the 5 mg/mL liquid to achieve a 2.5 mg dose.

can Famotidine cause blood thining?

Asked by: Anonymous
Side effects are rare with famotidine when used at the correct dosage. I have never heard of this particular adverse reaction in pets, but do not hesitate to consult with your veterinarian if you have any concerns about your pet taking this medication

How much famotidine can i give my 11 lb Dacshund, for upset stomach- - ( Vomiting
Asked by: Anonymous
It is used to reduce acidity in the stomach. Symptoms of acidity may include burping , vomiting, and gas. Start with 1/4 of the 10mg tablet every 12 to 24 hours for an 11 lb dog, It is best to give on an empty stomach, It works best that way.
