Dr. Whitehead :

Hello there. My name isXXXXX yes you can safely give imodium to Louie for soft stools. 1/2 tablet is just about the right dose for a dog his size. The published dose is right around 1 tablet per 40 lbs of body weight. The medication is safe enough that 1/2 tablet for 14 lbs is close enough even though its slightly high and it will not cause a problem. You can give imodium two to three times daily. So again yes 1/2 tablet is safe for Louie two to three times a day. If anything worsens definitely have him seen by your vet. I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns. I would be happy to help.
