Metoclopramide

Anti-Nausea Medication for Dogs and Cats

Metoclopramide pet medications are used to treat nausea, vomiting, and heartburn in dogs and cats. Metoclopramide can also be used to treat gastroesophageal reflux.

Metoclopramide helps normalize digestive system function. It treats nausea, vomiting, reflux, and prolonged fullness in cats and dogs, and it may be especially useful treating these symptoms in diabetic pets. It can prevent postoperative nausea and vomiting or that associated with chemotherapy. Metoclopramide is sometimes prescribed for other animals. For example, it helps with hairballs in rabbits.

  • Promotes healthy digestive function
  • Remedies nausea, vomiting, heartburn, esophageal reflux, and extended sensations of fullness
  • Prevents nausea and vomiting as a side effect of chemotherapy and surgery
  • Treats hairballs in rabbits and other conditions in other species
  • Used in diabetic animals
  • Available in tablet form and as a palatable caramel flavored sugar-free syrup
  • Prescription-strength treatment
  • Low-cost generic medication

Metoclopramide is primarily prescribed for cats and dogs, but may be prescribed in other species. Do not use in any animal for which it was not prescribed. Not for use in humans.
