This chapter deals with licensed and non-licensed drugs available to treat gastrointestinal (GI) and liver disease, their modes of action, interactions and potential side-effects in dogs and cats. The reader is referred to earlier chapters for information of diagnosis and recommendations on the complete therapy of specific conditions, including the critical roles of fluid therapy and nutritional modification, which are not covered in this chapter. In addition to specific treatment(s) for specific conditions, symptomatic therapies are also used. However, as most GI disturbances are acute and self-limiting the need for some of these remedies is debatable and their efficacy has infrequently been proven. Ideally, such symptomatic remedies are only used conditions requiring specific treatment have been excluded.
