Commonly prescribed for: Decrease Production of Gastric Acid
Species: Dogs, Cats, and Horses
Therapeutic Class: Histamine H2 Receptor Antagonist
Famotidine is a histamine H2 receptor antagonist that is used to decrease the production of gastric acid within the gastrointestinal tract. In human medicine, this drug is sold under the trade name of Pepcid. Other drugs in this family include cimetidine and ranitidine. These drugs prevent the stomach from producing acid by competitively inhibiting the binding of histamine at the receptor on the parietal cells of the stomach. Studies in human patients show healing of gastric ulcers in patients given either oral ranitidine or oral famotidine.
