I think I accidentally...

I think I accidentally gave him too much pepto bismol

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

He seems fine. It just dawned on me that last night I read the directions wrong. It stated .5ml per pound and I gave him 1ml per pound

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

He seems fine

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

Maybe a bit lethargic

Veterinarian's Assistant: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?

O’Malley 7 months

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about O'Malley?

Too much pepto bismol

I'm Dr. Sarah, a veterinarian with over 10 years experience and am here to help! How much does she weigh?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
He weighs 7 pounds
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
He got 6mls

Ok, let me do a calculation

Thank you

He should be fine. The concern with pepto is that it is a subsalicylate liquid/suspension like aspirin. It contains approximately 8.7 mg/mL salicylate, so 6 ml would contain 52mg. In a 7 pound dog that's not enough to cause an issue.
