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

Talk to other pet lovers about this product.
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)?
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:¬†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.
It is noted that Famotidine needs to be given on an empty stomach. If I have already fed my dog, can I still give it to him? or should I then wait until the next dosage time/next day?
Answer:¬†Famotidine will not work as well if it is given with food. It is important to always give the medication on an empty stomach. I recommend giving the medication 30 minutes before you feed your pet a meal or before bed.
i have a 17lb female Pug. lately she has been burping and passing gas more frequently.
Answer:¬†This product is useful in the treatment and prevention of gastric (stomach) and intestinal ulcers. If your furry pal is passing gas and nothing such as the food or feeding times have been changed this product can help. But if the problem does not go away please contact your vets office.
