Omeprazole in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Omeprazole in dogs


Avatar m tn The stress in my case would be living in a neighborhood with a bunch of people with dogs that let them bark 24/7 and don't seem to care that they may be bothering other people. For me barking dogs are something I just can't tune out. It is annoying the hell out of me. So, I'm trying to change my diet in the hopes that I can eliminate most of the problem. Any more questions/comments, feel free.

In kidney disease the kidneys are damaged and cannot excrete excess phosphorus, which then acts like a toxic substance in the blood. Reducing phosphorus intake is therefore important (check all the foods you may be feeding, including treats, for phosphorus content). The additional way of controlling it is to introduce a phosphate binder.
Avatar n tn She is fighting so hard to live. In Oct . she started feeling bad everytime my other dog go around her she would yelp . I just thought she didnt want to be messed with. A couple of days went by and she got worse laying around not wanting to do much so we brought her to the Vet. The vet said they thought she must have hurt her neck some how Because it seem stiff. They gave her rimadyl and methocarbamol . Ones for pain and the others is a muscle relaxation.

192055 tn?1263559137 Hi, there are a whole bunch of postings under "chronic cough" which seem similar to this. And some good ideas I am going to try I have had a constant cough for 3 plus years and for last year it has been phlegmy like yours. I am always coughing and clearing my throat at meetings like an old man. Worse in a.m. when I wake up or out in cold walking the dogs. Or.... talking on the telephone or in a meeting. Always have a "frog" in my throat.
Avatar m tn I have a continuous problem with thick mucous in my throat. I must clear my throat a hundred times a day. My larnyx gets so full of the thick mucous that I almost choke and it causes my eyes to water. When this happens I hack up about a quarter cup of the stuff. I went to an ENT specialist who diagnosed sinusitis due to restricted airflow because of a deviated septum. After two surgeries for this there is no improvment. I've tried Musinex and steroid nose sprays. Nothing seems to help.
14801663 tn?1436791766 (I wasn't happy with this answer, but she was the third of her colleagues I had put this question to and none of them seem keen - is it simply that they're inexperienced in IV therapy in dogs??) She was more positive about my husband administering SubQ fluids at home, and said we could talk about that going forward. (We're concerned though that without the IV therapy, the SubQs will be less effective.
Avatar m tn Infectious yawning has also been noted in chimpanzees and dogs.” Yawning easily arises as imitative action (in the form of mirror-neuron response). “A mirror neuron is a neuron that excited both when an animal acts and when the animal observes the same action performed by another. Thus, the neuron "mirrors" the behavior of the other, as though the observer were itself acting. Such neurons have been directly observed in primate and other species including birds.

Avatar n tn I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar m tn I have found some significant research that indicates that Omeprazole and also Metformin can indeed lead to vitamin B12 deficiency, which can in turn cause nerve damage. I started taking Omeprazole in early October 2009 and had my first neuralgia attack in early November 2009. I quit taking Omeprazole in late May 2011. I had my last bad attack in late February 2011. I also have taken Metformin for about a year. Now I have weaned off the Gabapentin to see if the pain returns.
Avatar m tn I got really stressed out today after a stupid argument and my stomach got MUCH worse. I had to take another capsule of omeprazole and eat some hot dogs to relieve the extreme discomfort. Whatever I have, I have just learned never to stress out with it. I had about twenty minutes of the worse discomfort ever! It makes the normal stuff pale in comparison.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Hi Tony, I personally used the following about a year ago, as prescribed by a Doctor. Found that it was RAPID and LONG LASTING and 100% effective. Haven't done any research or asked a Vet. All I know is, that it is EFFECTIVE and long lasting. The chemical name(s):: 'ONDANSETRON ODT'...4mg or 'ZOFRAN ODT'....4mg (Mfg.
Avatar m tn The vet prescribed 20mg prednisone to see if it will shrink the tumors some. They seem to be growing rapidly in her neck area. Since she has been on meloxicam for a couple of years, I was told to take her off that before giving her the prednisone. The vet suggested not waiting an entire week because being off the metacam that long will be hard on her hips and the tumors are growing. Is it safe to only wait 3-4 days?? She suggested Omeprazole to prevent stomach ulcers. Need a second opinion.
Avatar n tn I had gastritis end of September last year and since then have had daily acid reflux, I wake up with a sour taste of acid and then have heartburn and pain in my esophagus in the morning which progressively gets worse through the day. My GP put me on Omeprazole 40mg a day and I have been on it for 2 months but I am still getting daily acid reflux. My GP also prescribed Metoclopramide which seems to help a little.
Avatar f tn Our 7 year old yellow lab Rocco was recently diagnosed in the last stage of renal failure just a couple weeks ago. I brought him to our regular vet with symptoms of loss of appetite, bad breath & nausea. The vet did a brief exam & said his exam was unremarkable & didn’t feel like a blood work was necessary. Said he looks like a healthy dog. A week later I called the vet back & said I wanted blood work done. On a Friday they performed blood work & urinalysis.
Avatar m tn (Don't know if this has anything to do with problems, but thought I would throw it in). In September 2009, I moved to a new house. In November, I started having this constant annoying, non-productive cough with constant throat clearing. Went to see PCP and she diagnosed acid reflux. She put me on meds. Tried all sorts of OTC products with no help. Finally went to see GI doctor about February 2010. We kept changing up my meds, with nothing helping at all.
Avatar f tn It seems to start with a tickle which causes me to cough. Its not deep down near my lungs, this is in the area of gaging. I have had every test in the book. they couldn,t find a thing. They finally put me under so that they could go into my throat and esopagus and even into my stomach and came up with a clean bill of health.
Avatar f tn UTIs are very common in kd dogs, because their immune system is compromised. The real question on that is whether the vet did a culture and sensitivity test (C&S) on the urine BEFORE starting an antibiotic. If the wrong antibiotic was given, then the UTI may not have been eradicated completely, meaning it will just flare up again. Also, at the end of the antibiotic course, another C&S is needed to check for bacterium remnants.
Avatar m tn Every once in awhile, I get SEVERE pains in the chest. I had a stress test done in 2004 while I was in the military, as well as an ultrasound just a couple years later. (Not sure of exact time frame.) The only problem that was found was a VERY tiny bit of leakage from my heart, but I was assured that it was normal to have just a tiny bot of leakage. In the last few years, this pain has gotten worse. Especially in the last year or so! Like tonight...

17566731 tn?1457907522 Over time, it causes dogs to become chronically dehydrated, and that can result in kidney failure along with many other problems. Dry dog food is full of chemicals and is less nutritional than most canned food. If you want to learn more ... read my article here: But now you have started on Hill kd canned, that's good, as it contains about 80% water and is low in protein and phosphorus.
Avatar f tn Our vet said we were somewhat plowing new ground as there was really no literature on darbo treatments in dogs to use as a guideline. Anyway, her hermatocrit jumped back up to normal values (for her 42to 43%) and the shivering went away. With the darbo treatments, she also had to have iron and B vitamin injections for it to work properly.
Avatar m tn if you do go down this route, let me know and we can talk about needle sizes and options for administering. Omeprazole also comes in an oral suspension in 2 mg/ml. I'm not sure why your vet hasn't supplied that (as Prilosec), as it would be easier for you.
19691093 tn?1488197669 This can be extremely tricky when a dog has a heart problem, but it is more risky with dogs that have congestive heart failure, which I am not so sure is the diagnosis here.
Avatar m tn i ve got bloating ,pain in my chest..heartburn..pain in my ribs and back...he tried to changed me to omeprazole but the side effects of that medicine are really horrible...i'm back to prevazid//just one time in the morning before meals( one hour before) \now i have an apointment in tow weeks to get the test of breath for h pylory...i'm afraid that still is in my body...cause i took too much antibiotics when i was a teen ager for erradicated my acne...
Avatar n tn You will need to take a combination of medications like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals for complete relief. Possibility of H pylori infection too should be looked into by a carbon urea breath test and a combination antibiotic tried. Life style changes that will help include: Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals.
Avatar f tn This is a fermentable fiber, which is helpful on its own - but it also helps prevent stomach ulcers occurring in kd dogs. Has your vet checked for anaemia? This would show up in the blood results. If he is anaemic, then this needs treating fast. I guess I have given you a huge amount of stuff there - please ask questions if you have any, otherwise I will leave you to get on with things. Let me know how it goes.
