Customer reply replied 4 months ago
She is suppose to get two doses of 62.5 mg a day but she has had three doses today because of a mix up with my roommate
Pet Specialist: Dr. Rachel, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

What kind of dog is Lucky and how about how much does she weigh?

Ask Your Own Pet Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
She is a chihuahua terrier mix and weighs approximately 10 lbs
Pet Specialist: Dr. Rachel, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

She might have some diarrhea or throw up once or twice, but nothing more serious than that. You can actually give her a 5 mg Pepcid tablet now to help settle her stomach, as well as a teaspoon of yogurt to add in beneficial bacteria that the overdose of antibiotic may wipe out.

Where can I obtain Pepcid tablets?
Pet Specialist: Dr. Rachel, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

At the pharmacy or the pharmacy section of the grocery store. The generic name is famotidine.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
If the cvs near me are closed is it a big issue If she doesn’t get Pepcid?
Pet Specialist: Dr. Rachel, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

No, how is she this morning?

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
