Metoclopramide 14 14
It Works for Us Metoclopramide.Our Quincy has a very touchy stomach. This product was prescribed to help him avoid vomiting his meals. The most susceptible to vomiting in the morning so we give it to them right before bedtime. This product is been very helpful. I would recommend it to anybody that has an animal with vomiting problems. 11/23/2013
Dog meds If I give it to her in timed intervals on an empty stomach as by the directions along with digestive enzymes she is able to digest her food more easily.I would say it is an effective medication for a dog with Mega esophagus. 09/16/2013
Only thing that helped Snickers Our adult cat had been intermittently vomiting up his food both dry and wet - didn't matter - for awhile so after a particularly bad week and several office visits, the vet suggested we try giving him 1/2 pill of this medication crushed up in his wet food twice a day. As soon as he started taking it, the vomiting subsided. He would become so distressed from vomiting that he would hesitate to eat or eat very little. Now he has his appetite back and seems to be doing quite well like his old self! Reminds me of how I felt before I started taking a prescription anti-acid myself. 07/31/2013
Finally Success When my mom passed away I inherited her cat and she would eat and immediately vomit up the food before it had time to be digested. I had every test done and we finally tried metoclopramide which worked immediately. I give her a one quarter of a 5mg pill before each meal. I put the pill in a chicken pill pocket for ease of giving. As we know it's not easy giving pills to cats. I do suggest giving three small meals a day as my cat can not handle large meals and seems to like always having some food in her stomach. I feed her at 7am, 4pm and some before I go to bed. The few times I didn't give her the pill she threw up so I know this pill works. The food I feed her is Physician's diet dry food. " Venison and Green Pea. I do think the type of food you feed is important to their digestion. I hope this helps. I know how helpless I felt till we found this pill. 03/23/2012
Probably life saver After taking a month to get our Vet to give the OK for the prescription we requested from you, Dante has shown great improvement. She's an old dog and still brings up phlegm occasionally but her quality of life has markedly improved. We were about to give her the last kindness! 04/09/2011

The one i have is for humans want to know if its okto give to my pets
Answer:¬†So it can what is the difference if it says hcl or not is it the same and it can be used for animals too
Answer:¬†I feel it would be best to ask your vet.
Thank-you for your question. First, double check that the liquid solution is 5mg/5ml. If this is correct, a dosage of 0.9ml is appropriate for a dog weighing 4 pounds. Give the medication as instructed by your veterinarian. This medication is typically used as needed every 6-8 hours. Hope this helps!
Thank-you for your question! Metoclopramide is typically dosed 0.1-0.2mg per pound every 6-8 hours as needed. A 0.9mg dose is okay for your 4 pound dog. The tablets are only available as 5mg and 10mg, which would make dosing for your dog very difficult,if not impossible. It will be much easier to give the correct dose in a liquid form (a little less than 1ml per dose). They are the same medication, just different strengths/dosage forms. The tablets are much easier to use when dosing in larger dogs. Hope this helps!
can the 5mg pill be given or does it have to be liquid form?
Answer:¬†I feel it would be best to ask your vet.
Answer:¬†The usual dose for dogs and cats is 0.1 to 0.2mg per pound every 8 to 12 hours. The liquid may be necessary to obtain a small dose. Unfortunately, we do not compound Metoclopramide liquid. Consult your veterinarian for the appropriate dose and how to obtain the medication.
Answer:¬†For pets with nausea, a newer product is a available on the market called Cerenia. Cerenia does not have any restrictions in regards to breeds that possess the MDR1 gene. Please consult with your veterinarian to discuss the use of Cerenia for your pet.
