Famotidine 1 1
Works great My cat has kidney failure and was being given a tiny dose of famotidine by the vet....10 mg spread over 15 days, in cherry syrup....to help with her vomiting. While it was helping her control her upset stomach, a change in management at the vet coupled with a 400% increase in price, made me want to seek out alternatives. After reading the dosing instructions for this product, I realized that I could provide Sinclair with a much more concentrated dosage myself...simply by investing some time in cutting up the 10 mg tablets into quarters & grinding them. I mix the powder with some water and give it to her with an oral syringe.....she doesn't complain and her stomach has been so much better than it ever was with the vet's meds. Thank you, thank you! 01/01/2012

Im concerned that I may have been given false information. The Vet told me to give to my dog crushed in his food once a day. I went to order pepcid through this site and it says to give on an empty stomach. Will the pepcid still work if I put it in his food? Also for a 17 pound dog how much of the 10 mg pill should I give?
Answer:Thank you for your question. At this time, we do not have a liquid form available.
Answer:Thank you for your question. Famotidine is a non-prescription medication used in dogs and cats to reduce the amount of stomach acid being produced
My cat has chronic kidney disease and often vomits bile during the night, even though I feed him just before bedtime. Is it safe to give him famotidine to reduce the acid in his stomach to help stop him vomiting? Also, it is VERY expensive in the UK. Is it safe to buy online from the US (Kirkland brand)?
Answer:Thank you for your question. Please consult your vet prior to adding this to your furry pal's daily diet.
Pet will not swallow or chew pills. I need to place them in a pillcrusher, OTC Pepcid has a "coating" on them that makes crushing difficult.
Answer:Yes. Get a pill crusher Walgreens/Harmons. I crushed/mixed in syringe with water and put into her mouth.
Answer:Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we are not able to open the packaging to find out if there is a coating on the product. However, we do have our 100% Happy Guarantee so if you do have a difficult time with crushing the pills, we will be able to refund you for your purchase.
