Metoclopramide is available by prescription only. Metoclopramide is classified as an anti-emetic or anti-vomiting drug. Metoclopramide is prescribed to treat a wide variety of stomach issues that include vomiting, nausea, acid reflux disease, or food compaction. Metoclopramide blocks chemicals in the brain that cause your pet to vomit while stimulating the contraction of the stomach and intestines to help move food through the digestive tract.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Affordable
  • Easy to administer

How it works

When motility (movement) in the stomach is reduced, food pools and creates 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. Additionally, metoclopramide is able to cross a biochemical blood-brain barrier to control nausea. Metoclopramide helps the vomiting pet by acting directly on the brain to reduce the sensation of nausea.

Storage:

Store in a cool dry place. Keep out of the reach of children.

Give each dose with plenty of water. Give exactly as directed by your veterinarian.
  • Metoclopramide is a prescription medication used to treat nausea, vomiting, and reflux disease in dogs and cats.
