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

In regards ***** ***** question, you can but dogs can only tolerate a very lose dose. So, Julie can only have 0.04 mg per pound of her weight every 12 hours. If she has sedation with this, then we'd need to stop the medication. Otherwise, in a case of diarrhea, we'd most commonly use Kaolin/Kaopectate (More Info/Dose @ http://www.petplace.com/drug-library/kaolin-and-pectin-kapectolin-k-p/page1.aspx). This is available OTC at most pharmacies. Otherwise, Propectalin, Canikur, Fast Balance, and Protexin Pro-Fiber (which is available OTC at vets, pet stores, and even Amazon) would be another option. All will slow diarrhea and those last ones have the added bonus of providing support to the delicate good GI bacteria. So, these can be used as a short-term means of soothing this upset GI.

Otherwise, I would note that you can give low salt chicken broth to get fluids into her but otherwise in regards ***** ***** to digest diets, you can also offer small meals of cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, or meat baby food (as long as its garlic/onion free). These are ease for her gut to process and can get food/fluid into her while reducing her diarrhea load.

Overall, you can use Imodium but just be careful to stick to the dose I noted to keep her from any issue as you try to reduce her diarrhea and keep her hydrated during that unfortunate weather.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
