What is Metoclopramide?
Metoclopramide is a medication used to treat vomiting and acid reflux in many animal species. It also may be used to control side effects, such as vomiting, resulting from chemotherapy. In rabbits, it may aid in the treatment of hairballs.

Who is it for?
It is for dogs, cats, and many other species.

What are the benefits?

* Controls vomiting and esophageal reflux
* Can be used in many species of animals
* May also help control side effects resulting from chemotherapy, such as vomiting

Metoclopramide is commonly used in many species to treat vomiting, and reflux disease. It may aid in the treatment of hairballs in rabbits, and is often prescribed to prevent the side effects of chemotherapy, such as vomiting.

How does Metoclopramide work?
When muscles in the stomach do not push the food through to the intestines, un-passed food can cause a sensation of nausea and bloating. In some cases, bile refluxes from the intestine back into the stomach, causing irritation and more nausea. Metoclopramide normalizes stomach contractions so that food and bile can pass in the correct direction. Metoclopramide also acts directly on the brain to help reduce vomiting.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
This is a generic medication.

How is it given?
Metoclopramide is given orally with plenty of water. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
Metoclopramide will not cure the underlying cause of the vomiting. Metoclopramide acts quite rapidly, but is short-acting, so generally must be given several times a day.

What form(s) does it come in?
This medication comes in tablet form.
