    Hi Doctors,

    I have a 19 year old cat, Tommy, diagnosed with CRF (stage 3-4) six months ago. He is currently on renal wet food as well as other regular stuff (daily sub-Qs, stimulants, etc.). Also, I pill him daily 2.5mg Pepcid AC (Famotidine) due to high stomach acid causing low appetite. I was talking to a friend of mine who is practicing human MD suggesting that I should pill my cat with Proton Pump Inhibitors (e.g. Prilosec) instead of H2 Receptor Antagonists (e.g. Pepcid, Zantac). I did some search on the Internet and found the following info: http://goo.gl/ABJ3o and http://goo.gl/wCzHM
    Are Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) better than H2 acid blockers? Which one I should use for my cat?
