Subject: Re: pepto vs pepcid for GI problems question

My Mulberry just had adrenal surgery on March 26. This past weekend he
showed no interest in his regular food but was eating duck soup like mad.
He was also grinding his teeth and rubbing his face on the blankets after
he ate. I took him back to the vet today and was given Biaxin (a
prescription) and was told to give him 1/8 tablet of Pepcid AC a day. This
is what my vet always prescribes when one of my ferrets seems to come down
gastrointestinal problems and it always clears up whatever is wrong. I
don't know if this is right for your ferret but I have always had luck with
these. Jaki
