How do you give a dog sucralfate? Giving sucralfate in a slurry involves crushing your dog’s sucralfate and then dissolving it in a small amount of water. After mixing this solution thoroughly, use a syringe to administer the mixture to your dog, by mouth. Sucralfate works best on an empty stomach.
How often should I give my dog sucralfate? The typical dose administered to animals is 1/4 to 1 gram per pet. Small dogs and cats often receive 1/4 to 1/2 gram every six to eight hours. Medium to large dogs often receive 1/2 to 1 gram every six to eight hours. Medication is best used when given on an empty stomach – one hour before or two hours after a meal.
