Hello - I am Dr. Matt - I would be glad to help you with your question.
Yes, you can give Ranitidine to Purry to help reduce stomach acid levels. The dose is 1.5 - 3 mg every 12 hours. Therefore if you have 75 mg tablets, you could safely give him about 1/4 of a tablet every 12 hours. This medication is very safe and rarely causes any side effects. If this is not helping though I would talk to your vet about Zoran or a compounded formula of Omeprazole which can be made into a liquid form.
Hope this helps to answer your question - if not or if you have any more questions please feel free to reply. Thank you for your question.
