Ask your veterinarian if ondansetron is right treatment for your pet.

Uses

Drug & Food Interactions

Ondansetron is contraindicated in patients hypersensitive to it or other agents in this class. Ondansetron may mask ileus or gastric distention; it should not be used in place of nasogastric suction.

Precautions

How is this medication useful?

Ondansetron is used to treat and/or prevent severe vomiting in dogs and cats. The FDA (U.S. Food & Drug Administration) has approved this drug for use in humans, but it is not officially approved for use in animals. The FDA allows veterinarians to prescribe products containing this drug in different species or for other conditions in certain situations. You and your veterinarian can discuss why this drug is the most appropriate choice.

How long until I will know if this medication is working, and how long will the effects of this medication last?

This medication should help your pet feel better within 1 to 2 hours. Your animal's clinical signs should improve after that time.
