Her dose would be 1/4 of an immodium tablet every 8-12 hours as needed.

If you do not already know this I would with hold food until the morning to let her g.i. tract rest.. Water is ok. In the morning I would offer small amounts of boiled white rice and chicken as that will be easier on her tummy. Gradually mix in her regular dog food over the next 2-3 days.
