This is a pet prescription primarily used in the treatment of stomach ulcers. Gastric ulcer results in the break or erosion in the lining of the esophagus, stomach, or duodenum.
An anti-ulcer drug, VETACID belongs to the histamine receptor-2 blocker class. The secretion of gastric acid occurs when H-2 receptors present in the cell membranes of stomach cells are stimulated. By blocking the H-2 receptors, gastric acid will not be secreted, thus helping the ulcer heal. This drug also plays an important role in the treatment and/or prophylaxis of gastric, duodenal and esophagus ulcer ; for the prevention of aspiration of acidic gastric contents during general anesthesia; at parvovirus in dogs; at bleeding in the upper part of the digestive system.
METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION:
Internally by directly placing the tablet on the tongue or using a small amount of a favorite food. In case of refusal, levigate the tablet to a powder, and is dusted onto or mixed with food.
The doses for dogs are 0,1 - 0,2 mg per kg weight every 8 hours; 0,5 mg per kg weight every 12 to 24 hours or 0,5 - 1,0 mg per kg weight every 24 hours.
