Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relief for both of us I'm very happy with this med! I have a King Charles Cavalier with a very touchy tummy. Whatever it is-between garbage gut, or severe acid reflux. I don't know for sure what is doing it, but this medicine works fast, within 15- 20 minutes. The price is very affordable also.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stops Vomiting Other Complications Possible Just gave a review for Raglan for my 15 year old dog. Vet just called after blood tests and urinalysis taken Friday 6/16/17. My Baby Girl now has a red blood cell disorder as a result of having taken Raglan. It's called methoherinimia. Vet wants to see her asap. It does stop the vomiting 95% though. Every situation is different. Talk to your Veterinarian to determine if the risks outweigh the benefits. Good Luck. CHECK WITH YOUR VET. THIS IS A PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION. YES AND NO AS FAR AS A RECOMMENDATION. DEPENDS ON YOUR DOG'S VETERINARIAN AND HIS OR HER RECOMMENDATION. NOT MINE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Drug! My 15 year old dog was diagnosed by sonogram with gastrointestinal disease and severe acid reflux. Throwing up daily was taking a toll on her. Thought that I was going to have to give her rest. This drug brought her back to life. She is hyper after taking it but calls down after a ride with me for coffee in the am. She refuses to eat the digestive food given by the Vet. She eats Pedigree, rice and kibble without grains. The kibble contains salmon, sweet potatoes and pumpkin. Occasionally she will vomit phlegm with a little food. Only now and then. I also put Wal-Mart's Equate Clear Soluble Fiber Powder in her water. Helps bowel movement tremendously! She also has cancer. You wouldn't know it because she acts like a young dog. Most people think that she is a puppy. I too have spent thousands. Cherishing every moment that I have with her. MIRACLE DRUG!!! Don't know why it isn't FDA approved for dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Metoclopramide We have finally found a drug that works great for our little cockapoo who has Inflammatory Bowel Disease. We combine it the Gas-X and it works wonders!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works on one cat, the other it caused excitability I have one cat that has vomited his whole life, this helps him greatly. However, my other younger cat that sometimes vomits up his food immediately started meowing nonstop after I gave it to him. I also thought he was in pain, it can cause stomach cramps, but it also can cause excitability which I think happened to him. It's great when needed in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

What is Metoclopramide?

Metoclopramide is used to treat nausea, vomiting, and reflux disease in dogs and cats by normalizing their digestive system function. Metoclopramide requires a prescription and is sold per tablet.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Affordable
  • Easy to administer

How it Works:

When motility (movement) in the stomach is reduced, food pools and creates a sensation of nausea and bloating. In some cases, bile refluxes from the intestine back into the stomach, causing irritation and more nausea. Metoclopramide normalizes stomach contractions so that food and bile can pass in the correct direction. Additionally, metoclopramide is able to cross a biochemical blood-brain barrier to control nausea. Metoclopramide helps the vomiting pet by acting directly on the brain to reduce the sensation of nausea.

Cautions:

Do not use a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as Anipryl, Selegiline, or a Preventic Flea Collar on your pet while giving this medication. Stop giving metoclopramide and contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet has an allergic reaction. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure, if your pet has had recent stomach surgery, or is pregnant or lactating.
