Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B,a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Did you mean Pepto Bismol?

Does she look distended? Sound gassy?

Has she been showing any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Is she eating and drinking? Can she keep it all down?

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
