Famotidine, also known more commonly as Pepcid®, is used to reduce the amount of stomach acid produced. Famotidine is sold both as a prescription and as an over-the-counter medication. It can be used to prevent and treat stomach ulcers and reflux. Famotidine comes in an over-the-counter strength of 10mg, but it can also come in higher strengths that require a prescription.
Famotidine is associated with few side effects. Some include dry mouth, dry skin, or diarrhea.
Talk with your pet's veterinarian today regarding which option is best for your pet. Your pet's veterinarian will be able to discuss how often and what strength is necessary. If you miss giving your pet the dose, give it to him as soon as you remember. If it is close to the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your normal schedule. Signs of stomach ulcers or reflux may reoccur if dosages of famotidine are missed.
Famotidine is sold as an FDA approved generic drug. Brand varies from order to order and variation to variation. VetRxDirect is unable to guarantee which brand will be available at the time of order shipment.
