Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Now you have not listed how much he has had, but if you can that would be ideal since it would allow my to determine how severe some of the mineral doses he has had are. Otherwise, aside from the minerals, most of the product is only likely to cause gut upset and short term diarrhea. And in regards ***** ***** question, you can give Pepto Bismol (10ml for his weight every 8-12 hours) or Kaolin/Kaopectate to slow the diarrhea and coat the gut; but no Banamine. Otherwise, you will want to tempt him to eat and increase his fiber intake (ie canned or cooked pumpkin, etc). That way these will bulk up the stools and reduce dehydration secondary to diarrhea. Of course, we also need to keep him drinking to keep him hydrated and help flush this all through.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
