Cisapride is a medication commonly used in veterinary medicine to treat gastrointestinal motility disorders in animals. It helps to improve the movement of food and waste through the digestive tract by strengthening and coordinating the smooth muscles in the gastrointestinal tract. This can be particularly useful in treating conditions like gastric reflux, delayed gastric emptying, and colic in horses with grass sickness.

Cisapride works by stimulating the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter, which enhances the contractions of the smooth muscles in the digestive tract, promoting proper movement of food and waste. It is typically administered orally in the form of tablets or liquid, as prescribed by a veterinarian, and the dosage and duration of treatment will be determined based on the specific needs of the animal species prescribed for.

As with any medication, Cisapride may have potential side effects in animals, including diarrhoea, abdominal discomfort, and changes in heart rhythm. It is important to follow the veterinarian's instructions carefully and monitor the animal for any adverse reactions. It is also essential to inform the veterinarian about any other medications or health conditions the animal may have to avoid potential interactions or complications.

Cisapride is a valuable tool in veterinary medicine for managing gastrointestinal motility disorders in animals, but it should only be used under the guidance and supervision of a qualified veterinarian.
