It is not a good idea to give her over the counter medication to stop the diarrhea. This could be related to parasites and stopping the diarrhea with medication would go against with what the body is trying to do to eliminate the parasites. Discontinue the use of pepto bismol. Instead, change her diet to rice (75%) and boneless chicken (25%). Plus give her 1 teaspoon of plain yogurt twice a day for 2 weeks. If the diarrhea does not stop within 24 hours of changing her diet to the above, then speak to your vet and get her started on an antibiotic (flagyl). Once the diarrhea is resolved wean into her regular diet.

 

If you have additional questions I will be glad to answer them.
