Re: Famotidine dosage
- I've had to give famotidine before and the largest amount I've seen anyone give is 2.5 twice a day. Cats that have higher creatinine get it once a day or every other day. Please ask your vet about this.

- My cat started on 10mg twice a day, which is twice what your cat is now
getting. Within about a week her ascites resolved and we gradually weaned
her down to 5 mg once a day. That works for her now, but we keep an eye on
her. It all depends on the cat and the situation at the moment and the
dosage might have to be adjusted in the future.

Subject: [FH] Famotidine dosage
I am new to this forum... I have an 11 year old tabby recently diagnosed
with CKF. My doctor has advised to give her 10mg/day of Famotidine, given in
two doses of 5mg each, 12 hours apart...
Is that dosage a common dosage given that meds will remain longer in their
system due to lack of hydration.
Thank you for any ideas or experience you might provide.
(Tigg was diagnosed with HCM along with her sister when they were 5 years
old, we have since lost her sister at age 7 3/4. Tigg is now 11 yers old and
about 14.5 lbs as of this writing).
