Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

Because carafate needs to work in an acid environment, it MUST be given at least 2 hours before the Pepcid A/C. If given at the same time or after, the Pepcid A/C will neutralize the stomach acid rendering the carafate useless.
