Ranitidine in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Ranitidine in dogs

zantac

It is completely heart wrenching when their time comes to leave us, just as with human friends and family that we lose over time. In the end, all we can do is offer our dogs all the reassurance, love and attention they deserve and be as kind and humane as we possibly can. They need us to be strong and do the right thing ... regardless of how much it hurts us, it's one of the many responsibilities of being a good owner. My heart goes out to you. Give Shaggy an extra hug from me.

I take phenergan myself for constant nausea, and discovered late in the game that dogs can also take phenergan. It didn't work quite as well as the reglan, but at that point we tried anything we could get our hands on. Over the counter Dramamine for motion sickness can be tried as it is metabolized in the liver - got that info from an ER vet nearby.
The vet has given me Cerenia for the nausea (to give her only when necessary) also Ranitidine Oral Solon, stimulates stomach acid secretion ranitidine blocks acid secretion in the stomach to provide a more favorable stomach pH. Hopefully get her eating. She has been eating a little, but very lethargic. She is quite bright in the morning and enjoying her walks though has slowed down. But tonight I am worried, I will ask the vet about Sub-Q fluids. Also check out the links.
I have had hives for about 3 years and reading this question has turned on a light bulb in my head. I have been drinking Splenda in my coffee for about that time. The Doctors found I am allergic to cats, dogs, trees, ragweed, things that i have been around for about, oh, all my life. my hive outbursts are so painful. I get hives in my scalp and on the bottom of my feet that swell up so horribly. Why can't anyone figure out these outbursts?
This is a natural cure for canine stomach ulceration (common in CKF dogs) and can also help ease acidity. Probiotics are always beneficial to CKF dogs and it is also nice tasting (usually), so it can also help encourage CKF dogs to eat if mixed with their meals.
Thank you both.
Yep, prednisone (long-term) can cause diabetes both in humans and dogs. One of our dogs (a Toy Fox Terrier) was on prednisone for about 8 months due to health problems including allergies, he developed diabetes, and now is on insulin and a low-carbohydrate diet. (I think it's more likely in dogs to cause diabetes, I was on prednisone at high doses from 2-14 years old and I have some long-term side effects that do remain but I don't have diabetes.) Have you tried adjusting her diet?
Dogs with parathyroid conditions are predisposed, as are dogs who get too much calcium in their diets. Dogs with Cushing's Disease (hyperadrenocorticism) can easily develop pancreatitis. Medication can cause it as can organophosphates found in some insecticides that are used on outdoor plants and trees.
If your dog has trouble with upset stomach (eating grass, vomiting) I give Mo a 75mg tablet of Ranitidine (generic ingredient in Zantac). Here's the last bit, which I'm a strong believer in: everyday I give Morgan about 8oz or so of raw green tripe, which I buy in frozen chunks from the Nature's Menu website. This stuff is foul. I keep it and the rest of her food in a small freezer only for the dog (£60 at Argos).

Dear Robino54, Your post includes several elements about which I would like to comment. Pica, eating nonfood items, is a common complaint in dogs and occurs for a variety ofr reasons, and also at times for no discernable reason. Do your best to prevent it. That said it is not uncommon for kidne disease patients to be inappetant. Treating the causes when possible will be more effective than simply trying to stimulate appetite. See further detail below.
I've seen this many times! My dogs all get small doses w/every meal for life....In all honesty, a healthy digestive system is the key to health! Next, what did you end up feeding her after your last post? Any updates on that? Do you have a laundry room or kitchen with a washable floor? Could you fix either up w/a baby gate (Don't close her off with a main door), so she has more room at night? The crate may be the problem and causing the stress....

This is a little far a field, but I own two dogs, I can scratch a certain spot on my dogs neck and his hind leg starts a thumpin. The nervous system in dogs as well as humans has interconnections and relationships to parts of the body we would never expect. Perhaps this is why acu-puncture works well for many people. Lastly, I do recognize a connection between what I eat and the number and frequency of irregular beats.
Going to walk the dogs shortly,trying to stay in shape to start tx next mnth.Going to try to find some imfo. on the t-anemia for Iceboy later today.Poor guys having a hard time.Hope Magnum and the others tx aggresively are good today.Hope that 2nd shot goes well for you today!
9 years ago, I had a breakdown and afterwards moved into a place for 6 months where the lady let her dogs run all over the beds. I had cats in my childhood and was fine with them, until developing a cat fur allergy in the last 4 years of their life, and ever since then. Since moving out of the lady's house, I have ever since had the most almighty, hacking, crackly, phlegm producing cough which sounds very similar to a smokers cough-I have NEVER ever smoked in my life.
He was neutered & 14 yrs 7 months old when he died. I know it was just his time, but the way he died upset me & I’m not convinced we & our vet didn’t play a role in expediting his death or suffering. I was wondering if I gave details of, if anyone would be able to explain what caused him to die the way he did?: Medical history: - Poor dentition. - 3 SC lipomas (been there at least 5-6 yrs). - Bilateral patella subluxation, since birth, worse with age.
I hope you find peace in your decision. It won't happen overnight, but I truly believe dogs 'visit' in our dreams to show us they're okay wherever they are. Daisy comes to me every once in a while, when she knows I need a little push to get out of bed, take the next step, etc. The good thing about a dogs love is that it never leaves you.

Am thinking of thinking an immunologist since the allergist was absolutely no health. Or as I read somewhere a physician would rather see an elephant in his office than a patient with hives.
I went to a chriopractor in Jan 2007 for pins and needles in hands balance problems shoulder stiffness and numbness in back and left foot which i thought must be linked to a car accident i had in nov 2006 (hit someone head on at 40 mph). I also at that time had sharp pain in my right eye and over shooting like i kept having to bring the eye back into focus and a shingle type nerve pain over the right side by my ribs which has come and gone really painfull.
I probably could get the problem under control. Anyway, I brought my cat in to this vet's hospital, where an x-ray was performed. This time, the diagnosis was definately megacolon. They gave my cat an enema, and tried him on lactulose, since paraffin is not commonly prescribed in this country. This was about six months ago. Since that time, I have had to switch back to paraffin (I order it from overseas), because the lactulose did not seem to work at all. I have to say that he seems worse.
I thought that the new hives were from mosquitos that were getting me in our house and when I let the dogs out - but I started covering myself up and using "Off" and kept getting them. Then they started in huge clusters underneath my clothing and started to merge together to form COLOSSIAL sized ones. I always thought that "nerves" causing things were kind of a cop-out for symptoms, but now I know better.
Hi, In the overwhelming majority of cases it is not "something" causing the chronic hives, it is "nothing." That is, in about 95% of chronic hives cases, the hives are "idiopathic" (a medical term that means there is no discernible cause). In about half of patients with chronic idiopathic hives, the explanation is that body's immune system is, in a sense, overactive. The urticaria is "autoimmune".
Also, they have discovered I am allergic to latex....when I wore latex gloves in a setting I worked in...hives all over my hands. I am now giving the XYZal a chance. I hope it works...makes me a little sleepy, but it is worth it not to be itching. I really am fortunate in having a great doctor. He has tried several meds with my case, but I am trying to not have a lot of meds in my system. I hope this will work.
I am still convinced that it is related to hormones because they will also occur around my cycle so I really need to be tested for hormone levels as I still don't seem to have balance. I also took the ranitidine, but as Dr. Lee explained in the book, it depletes your body of calcium faster than you can ever put it in. Soy milk (there are different kinds) is actually a pretty good alternative to milk, and other forms of dairy do not seem to bother me as badly. What is hydrochloric acid?
She said that all the indigenous people do parasite cleanses, she says you worm your dogs why don't you do it for yourself. She claims everyone in the world has parasites, when your body get so full of parasites, then they can come out through the skin, cause all kind of diseases. You must do a parasite cleanse, then take a dose of the three products one a week to keep the parasites out of your body. I think this would be a good thing for all of us to do. Then go from there if necessary.
also there is a bump on the edge of my penis head that had peeled and gone away for a few days and re-appeared in the exact same spot which seems to have formed as a bump/scar(not as itchy)... ...i have very itchy bumps on my inner thighs and butt cheeks that seem to be getting worse. I also notice very very very very small blister type bumps on my fingers that i have popped and released some sort of fluid.. the bumps on my penis/butt/thighs do not seem to have any fluid in them..
My itchiness has been getting progessively worse for the past few years. I'd say almost 3 yrs now. It's to the point where I can't even engage in intercourse with my partner, go shopping or even go out in the sun. I keep hearing and reading how Urticaria, usually has signs on the skin surface but I don't, except for the really bad itchy feeling.
