Hi, I'm Dr. Bonk. I'm sorry to hear about Scout's troubles. He can have 7ml (about 1.5 tsp) Pepto Bismol 3 times a day. If there is no improvement in 3-4 days, it's time to see the vet. Also, a couple TBSP of plain yogurt with his food twice a day can help as well. If you have any further questions, please let me know. Thank you and good luck!
