HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this.....give me a few minutes to compose answer...
how much does your dog weigh?
Hi this is DrB. I am not allowed to take phone calls by my medical board. If you would like I can continue to answer your questions this way or I can opt out and let another expert help you. Sincerely, DRB
yes, you can but you have to be very careful....how much does your dog weigh?
ok, I see you listed it already....
You can give your dog lomotil but for no more than 2 days if diarrhea does not stop after that you must visit your vet.Let me get you a dose....
He can have 1.4 mg of lomotil up to about 2.9 mg.....give me a minute and I will look up tablet size for you...
So you can give him the lomotil 2.5 mg tablet ( you can get at pharmacy) every 8 hours for 2 days. I would not go beyond 2 days as lomotil can contribute to ileus ( intestines not working) or bloat and large breeds are predisposed to bloat so safest thing to do is dose just twice daily for 2 days and then stop.
Do you have any other questions?
