Cimetidine is one of the products that Dr. Dressler recommends in the Dog Cancer Survival Guide for managing side-effects. Cimetidine, or the over-the-counter drug tagamet, is recommended for nausea and vomiting.
In humans, it has also shown to help decrease cancer cell spread and can help to alleviate some forms of immune suppression-- which is cause by the release of histamine.
In general, this products can be used with most dogs but please consult with your veterinarian first as they can determine whether this product will work alongside your dog's health plan and treatments.
We hope this helps in reducing your dog's side-effects! :-)
