No she seems to be calming down. She had stomach problems all day but had good bowel movement today just seems she can't get settled
Dog Veterinarian: Dr Marta Lepes, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

She might have excessive stomach acid.

Do you have some Pepcid or Pepto-Bismol?

What size dosage do you have for the Pepcid and how much does she weigh?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Pepto says on box 262 mg. She weighs about 35 lbs
Dog Veterinarian: Dr Marta Lepes, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

OK give me a moment to do the calculation

Dog Veterinarian: Dr Marta Lepes, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

You can give her ½ teaspoon of the Pepto-Bismol. Sometimes adding it to milk makes it easier to take.

Pepcid works better.

You can give her that 3 x day. If that doesn't settle her tummy take her to see your vet tomorrow.

She's an old girl and we want be especially careful with her.
