Below is the chart for Omeprazole, an anti-nausea drug that we recommend our patients receive the night before an anesthetic procedure. Omeprazole is the generic name for Prilosec, which is available over-the-counter (OTC) without a prescription in 10 mg and
20 mg tablets. At Media City Animal Hospital, we carry 5 mg tablets for little guys.
If you don't have any omeprazole at home and can't make a trip to get some, it's okay. We give all our anesthetic patients an anti-emetic (anti-vomiting) drug in the morning of surgery.
