Hello again and thanks for waiting.
Sorry to hear Chuck is unwell, however I have worked out an answer for you below ...
1. Yes Imodium is fairly frequently prescribed for dogs with diarrhoea. It can often work well for uncomplicated cases where a dog is otherwise quite bright and happy, where for example a dog has eaten something he should not have out in the yard, or had some unaccustomed rich foodstuff, or has somehow acquired a minor tummy bug of sort. Please follow this link for more information on how this drug is used in dogs including dose rates : LINK
That said that there are a number of other home remedies for diarrhoea in the dog, here are some examples.
1. I am aware that some owners use Pepto-Bismol to treat their dogs with diarrhoea and report success. Here is a link to a web page which has all the information you might need including dose rates : LINK
2. Some owners try and control the situation with diet alone before they try anything else. This is logical and often works, the basis of this is to give the intestinal tract a complete rest and then bring it back slowly to function, resting the alimentary tract is the critical factor. It would go something like this ...
A. Starve him for 24 hours but make sure he has access to water.
B. The next day feed him four or five small light meals in the day. These meals should be the likes of chicken, fish, scrambled egg etc. with a little rice.
C. If he picks up on this diet gradually reintroduce his normal diet over the next few days.
3. Live yogurt added to the food can often help. Some gastro-enteritis situations are caused by an imbalance in the bacteria in your dog's gut. Live yogurt is full of " good " bacteria and will seed them into your dog's intestinal tract and restore the balance. A tablespoon twice a day would be fine for a dog of your one's size.
4. It would be safe to try any of the above in combination with the Temaril P .
Of course if any of the above does not quickly start to work or if Chuck deteriorates further in any way you should have your vet check him over just to be on the safe side.
I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
