Hello,

I'm Dr. Jo and I'm a veterinarian with more than twenty years of experience. I'm here to help you with your question about Buddy, Pepto Bismol, and Cerenia.

To start with, I want to let you know that it is safe to use Pepto and Cerenia at the same time.

Expert:  Dr. Jo replied 3 months ago.

You may rest assured this combination won't cause any bad effects or produce an overdose.

Expert:  Dr. Jo replied 3 months ago.

Does this help to answer your question at this point in time? I want to be as helpful as I can because I know what it's like to worry.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
that does help. I was worried since I had forgotten to let the vet know about the pepto bismol that I had given him in the morning. So eventough I had give Buddy a whole tablet in the morning and they gave him 1 ml of cerenia, he wont overdose etc
Expert:  Dr. Jo replied 3 months ago.

Correct. These two drugs work very different and won't interfere with each other or cause an overdose. You don't have to worry about not mentioning the Pepto to your vet.

I hope Buddy feels better soon.
