Product Info
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.

Brand Name:

Reglan (Robins)

Generic Name:

Metoclopramide (me-toe-klo'-pra-mide)

What is the most important information I should know about metoclopramide:

Metoclopramide is a prescription medication that is not FDA approved for use in veterinary medicine; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use this medication in dogs and cats. Metoclopramide is available as 5mg and 10mg scored tablets. The usual dose for dogs and cats is 0.1-0.2mg/pound every 6-8 hours. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Metoclopramide is not for use in animals allergic to it. Call your veterinarian immediately if your pet exhibits uncontrollable movements or muscle spasms of the legs, lips, jaw, tongue, face or other body part, agitation, jitteriness, shortness of breath or insomnia. Metoclopramide may cause drowsiness.

What is metoclopramide:

Metoclopramide is a gastrointestinal stimulant used in the treatment of nausea, vomiting, and esophageal reflux. It also used to treat post-operative nausea and vomiting and to prevent nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. Metoclopramide may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving metoclopramide to my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or recent stomach surgery. Inform your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be given:

Metoclopramide is usually given 3 or 4 times a day. Give each dose with plenty of water. Follow your veterinarian's instructions. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store metoclopramide at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets. 

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet:

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include drowsiness, confusion, and uncontrollable movements of the legs, face and tongue, muscle spasm of the neck, tremor, irritability and agitation.

What should I avoid while giving metoclopramide to my pet:

Do not use Preventic Flea Collar on your pet while giving this medication.

What are the possible side effects of metoclopramide:

Stop giving metoclopramide and contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet has an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue, face; and hives), uncontrollable spasms of the legs, lips, jaw, tongue, face or other body part, anxiety, agitation, insomnia, depression, yellowing of the skin or eyes, seizures. Other less serious side effects that may occur include nausea or diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, fluid retention, increased urination. Continue to give the medication and contact your veterinarian.

What other drugs will affect metoclopramide:

Before giving metoclopramide, tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given an MAOI such as selegiline or Anipryl (within the last 14 days), digoxin, cyclosporine, tetracycline, insulin, a narcotic pain reliever or anticholinergic or antispasmodic medications such as Bentyl (dicyclomine). Also tell your veterinarian of any other medications you are giving that may cause drowsiness such as pain relievers, anxiety medications, muscle relaxants or any other prescription or over the counter medications. 

Where can I get more information:

Your pharmacist has additional information about metoclopramide written for health professionals that you may read.

Call your veterinarian for medical advice about any side effects to your pet. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Customer Reviews
Metoclopramide is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Is there a limit to for how long a dog can take this drug?  Can it be given for life?  (In humans I believe it is 12 weeks).  Thanks.

There is no direct limit for duration of use for this medication in dogs. It has been proven safe for chronic use. Of course, if your pet develops any side effects or reaction, talk with your Vet right away. Hope this helps.
