Product information

What is Famotidine used for in pets?

Famotidine is a prescription medication that can treat various digestive issues in pets, such as ulcers, acid reflux, and vomiting. It works by decreasing the amount of acid produced in the stomach and helping to reduce inflammation. Additionally, it may be used to prevent or treat certain types of gastric ulcers. Famotidine is an effective medication for treating these conditions, but it should only be used in animals with a valid prescription from a vet.

Can pets take Famotidine for humans?

Yes, pets can take Famotidine prescribed for humans, but only if instructed to do so by a veterinarian. The dose of Famotidine will be determined by your vet based on your pet's size, weight and condition.

What is the dosage of Famotidine for dogs and cats?

The dosage of Famotidine for your pet will be determined by your veterinarian based on their size and condition. Generally, the dose is anywhere from 5-20 mg per pound of body weight, taken once or twice daily. You must follow your vet's instructions carefully and not exceed the recommended dose, as doing so can cause serious side effects.

How do I give my pet Famotidine?

Famotidine can be given to pets in several forms, including tablets, capsules, liquid suspensions, and injectables. Always administer Famotidiine exactly as you have been instructed to by your vet.

What are the side effects of Famotidine in pets?

As with most prescription medicines, Famotidine may cause side effects. These may resemble those experienced by humans, such as appetite loss, diarrhoea, vomiting, headache, dry mouth, and dry skin, but also include other complications. If you notice any side effects after giving your pet Famotidine, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Where can I buy Famotidine for dogs and cats over the counter?

You cannot buy Famotidine over the counter. Famotidine is a prescription-only medicine, so it must be prescribed by a veterinarian before you can buy it for your pet. Once you have a veterinary prescription, you can buy Famotidine for your cat or dog from the vet or a pharmacy, including some online pharmacies such as HealthExpress.

How do I place an order for Famotidine for my pet at HealthExpress?

Simply select the prescribed dosage and quantity and place the order. Once the order has been placed, you will need to post your pet's prescription to us. When we have received your order request and prescription, the details will be checked by our pharmacist, and the treatment will be sent to your chosen address.

How much is Famotidine for pets?

The cost of Famotidine for pets can vary depending on the dosage strength and quantity needed. As Famotidine is a medicine used to treat humans as well, you can typically get it for a better price if you buy it from a pharmacy than if you get it from the vet. Online pharmacies advertise their prices, and you typically won't find it cheaper than from an online provider, such as HealthExpress. Additionally, some pet insurance providers may cover the cost of certain medications. Always do your research before making a purchase.
