The other day Windy had loud tummy sounds, nasty gas and didn’t want breakfast. Fearing another round of hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, I called my veterinarian. She said to give her a Pepcid (famotidine).
I have given dogs Pepcid before and had success. Please remember: Not all human medicines are appropriate for dogs. Pepto Bismol, for example, is not a good idea.Yet I have had dogs take baby aspirin, amoxicillin and phenergan prescribed by a vet.
Windy’s symptoms were gone later that day, and she ate a good dinner. Looks like I’ll stop buying Tagamet for me and use Pepcid.
