Cat Stomach Acid Production

Wednesday, January 24, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

Stomach acid in cats can be a problem just as it is in humans. Certain diseases such as Kidney disease can cause an over production in stomach acid and can cause your cat to vomit. My cat Molly has advanced kidney disease and usually spits up mucus in the morning. I asked my vet about medicine to help with the acid and vomiting. He prescribed 10 mg of Pepcid. One quarter of a tablet once or twice a day. I’ve been giving her one quarter of a tablet in the morning and one quarter tablet in the evening and it seems to be helping a bit.

Always consult with your vet before administering any over the counter medications to your pet. You may be doing your pet more harm than good!
