My vet gave her...

My vet gave her famotidine does she take it with food or stand alone?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name and age?

Bear and she is 10 years old she has irritable bowel and tommy and sometimes as today she threw up so she has a standing order of cerenia which is given without food and famotidine I never know if famotidine should be taken with food or not

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

I dont think so living in iowa we have had a really hard winter and i think the cold has upset her she is an only "child" and she has her moments

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the dog's name?

Bear

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bear?

No just do i give the med with food or not ?

the script says once a day 1/2 tablet

Perfect!

Give the 1/2 tablet 15 minutes before first meal of the day

IF gets upset stomach or vomits (very unlikely) then give it with a treat or small bit of doo.

Okay?
