Sucralfate is an anti-ulcer drug often prescribed for stomach & intestinal problems in dogs. It is approved for human consumption but is legal for use as an off-label drug in dogs and other animals.
Research has shown that this drug is effective for many types of ulcerations in the body.
Studies suggest that Sucralfate binds with naturally occurring acids in the stomach to form a paste that covers & protects the ulcerated areas, often referred to as a "bandage effect," which allows ulcers to heal independently.
Sucralfate seems to shield ulcers from harmful stomach acids that can cause further irritation, inflammation, & perpetuation of the condition.
