Customer Question

My cat is 15.5 years old.weighs 10 lbs. She has stomach problems and cries out too frequently.She is impossible to take to the vet. Gets very upset;BP becomes quite elevated, and she urinates all over herself. She vomits acidic(bubbles); whitish material from time to time. I think nexium would help her. What dosage might I try with her?

Hello Mary Ann,

I am sorry Peaches has stomach problems.

Can you please tell me how long shes had this and exactly what she eats?

Does she get constipated, vomit, or have diarrhea or gas?

after your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer or if you prefer we can speak on the phone.

Thanks,

Terri

I would like you to add one quarter of a ten mg pepcid A/C to a tablespoon of chicken or turkey baby food with no onion or garlic

At her evening meal:

She can have it every 12 hours.

Elevate her dishes so she does not get acid refflux. You can place them up on a phone book.

Please list what foods she eats so I can see it.I want to see if she is eating foods that cause allergic reactions.
