I am so sorry to hear Dillie is not feeling well. Dicyclomine is not commonly used in dogs but when used it is a dose of 0.15 mg/kg so your dog weighing 14 pounds (6.4 kg) would be a dose of approximately 1 mgOther things to settle the stomach- Leash walk tonight will help with nausea, abdominal cramping and spasms and help Dillie rest more comfortably
- White rice and lean boiled meat such chicken in small more frequent meals in the morning- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.5 mg/ kg every 12 hours (1/2 of a 10 mg tablet) to help settle her stomach. If you have omeprazole that is also an option for settling the stomach at 1 mg/kg daily (1/2 of a 20 mg tablet)Please let me know how else I can assist you both today. I hope your pet is feeling better soon!
