Sucralfate

Anti-Ulcer Medication

Sucralfate is an anti-ulcer agent and gastric mucosa protectant used in dogs, cats and horses. Sucralfate coats and and protects ulcers against further damage from stomach acids and enzymes. It's also given to help prevent ulcers when an animal is receiving aspirin or NSAIDs. 

Sucralfate binds to ulcerated tissue in the GI tract, including the mouth, throat, esophagus and intestines. Sucralfate also acts as a cytoprotectant by increasing prostaglandin synthesis.

Dosage and Administration:
Sucralfate may be administered concurrently with H2 inhibitors, like cimetidine, without causing an interaction. Give this medicine on an empty stomach at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after feeding. Do not give antacids for at least 30 minutes before or after giving this medicine.
