What is Famotidine Compounded?

Famotidine Compounded is a prescription medication used in dogs to reduce the amount of stomach acid being produced. Although Famotidine is not FDA-approved for use in veterinary medicine, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to prescribe this medication for dogs. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Famotidine Compounded requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
