Q. Hi, my 13 lb min-Pin got into the trash and has an upset stomach. Could I give her some pepto bismol? If so, how much per her weight?
A. This can only be given after examination by a vet as it is contraindicated in certain instances.
If your dog has been vomiting then starve for 12 hours and then gradually reintroduce food, a bland diet such as chicken. If vomiting continues or she becomes lethargic then you should see your vet. If it has been diarrhea then try a pro biotic paste from your pet store. If it continues despite a couple of days of treatment or very watery then you need to see your vet too.
