Thank you for your question. While the Famotidine tablets do not require a prescription https://www.1800petmeds.com/Famotidine-prod11171.html. The Famotidine Compounded liquid does require a prescription.

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

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.
