Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] pepto vs pepcid for GI problems

Yes, pepto comes in a tablet form and a liquid form.
Most pharmacies and drug stores carry it. Carafate
taste better, and it may be better to use. For carafate
take 1/8 of the tablet, dissolve in 1 ml of warm water and give
orally 10-20 minutes before feeding.
Pepcid, Tagamet, and Zantac can all be used, but as Dr Williams
out they may make maldigestion/malabsorption worse.
Hope that helps,
