A painful belly for your pet can be bad enough. But when it's accompanied by vomiting and reflux, you may need to talk to your vet. Metoclopramide is a prescription medication used to treat nausea, vomiting, and reflux in dogs and cats. It can also help to control vomiting associated with chemotherapy, and stomach and gastrointestinal upset following surgery. Metoclopramide is sold per tablet, or as an injectable or syrup.

If your pet exhibits any of the following symptoms, stop use of the medication and contact your veterinarian immediately: allergic reaction (symptoms may include swelling, itching, hives, difficulty breathing, etc.), spasms, anxiety/agitation, seizures, insomnia, depression, or yellowing of the skin or eyes. Less serious side effects may include: nausea, diarrhea, lethargy, dizziness, confusion, bloating, increased urination. If your pet exhibits these side effects, continue use of the medication and contact your veterinarian.
