What dosage of ranitidine should I give my 80 lbs dog? Why…
Submitted: 10 years ago.Category: Dog
The normal dosage for Ranitidine (Zantac) is 0.25 to 1 mg per pound of body weight every 8 to 12 hours. You could give your dog (1) 75mg tablet. This is given for acid reflux in dogs. I will supply you with a website that gives further information on the Ranitidine and its useage in pets. Joan
That can be one of the reasons for bad breath as well as a dental problem, gum disease, eating something that he should not have. The Zantac should take effect within a couple of hours of ingestion and you should start to see some difference in the breath by the next day if the stomach was the problem with the breath. You can also put your dog on a bland diet for a few days. The diet will be chicken breats boiled at 1 part skinless chicken breast to 3 parts white rice. If the bad breath, continues a Vet visit should be done to see what the cause of the problem can be. Joan
