Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman with 20+ years of experience and happy to assist you both today. Please give me a few moments to respond and I will be back momentarily!As veterinary experts we are unable to prescribe medication to a pet not personally examined by law. In doing so risks my veterinary license. I am unable to assist with telephone calls if requested per my state guidelines and this will lock the question to my responses so please do not request

I am sorry to hear your little one has gas

Yes the proviable is absolutely fine to give to your new puppy

If there is an underlying cause it may not help

Puppies of this age can have some digestive upset that is causing it or even the food you are feeding is not agreeing with her

So if there is no change a fecal evaluation is advised to rule out a medical issue and if negative you need to consider a slow transition to a new diet

Please let me know if you have additional questions

good to know. thank you so much. how much can I give her? the same as tye adult? they both weight 9.5 lbs

Yes the proviable is one capsule per dog regardless of size

ok perfect and the paste 1 mL?

Yes that would be correct

thank you
Zelda says thank you too

Awww, what a sweetie!
