I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Rosie, please?

In general, this type of dietary indiscretion is self-limiting and can be treated symptomatically with an intestinal coating agent such as bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto Bismol, Kaopectate) in the wide range of dosing of 0.1 - 1 mL/lb of body weight 3-4 times daily. 1 mL = 1/5 of a measuring teaspoon.
