Description / Action:
Diarest – M Gel syrup contains aluminum hydroxide that helps in reducing the acidity in the digestive tract. Antacids increase the pH to a more basic level and reduce the acidity in the digestive tract. It is used to treat symptoms associated with heartburn, acid reflux, and peptic ulcers. Some antacids like aluminum hydroxide may be effective in pets with kidney failure (chronic kidney disease or CKD) to reduce the amount of phosphate in the blood.
How it works:
Acidity in your pet’s digestive tract increases when acetylcholine, histamine, and gastrin stimulate cells in the stomach wall to release hydrochloric acid.
Antacids reduces the stomach irritation caused by the acid by neutralizing the acid molecules and ultimately increasing the pH in your pet’s body.
