Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!The expert you requested is unfortunately unavailable but I wanted to ensure your question was answered. Zantac is a difficult antacid in little dogs because of its concentration.In dogs, the typical dose administered is 0.25 to 1 mg per pound (0.5 to 2 mg/kg), every 8 to 12 hours. It can be administered orally or by injection. Ranitidine is supplied in 75 mg, 150 mg and 300 mg tablets. So for Coco this would be 3.5-14 mg very difficult to cut even with the 75 mg tablet!Alternatives for your Coco include:- Pepcid (famotidine) 10 mg 1/4 tablet every 12 hours- Prilosec (omeprazole) 20 mg 1/4 tablet dailyI hope this makes sense but please let me know any additional questions I can assist with today!
