Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not rapidly improve.

  • Administer all prescribed medications exactly as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

  • Discontinue or avoid any medication or substance that may be irritating to the stomach lining.

  • Return to your veterinarian for follow-up testing as directed. Monitoring for anemia, electrolyte problems, and blood clotting ability may be indicated depending on the underlying cause of melena in your pet.
