Question

Can I give my 24.5 lbs. sheltie a part of an Immodium-D caplet for common diarrhea?

Answer

You can give 0.08 mg/kg, PO, tid-qid, which is three or four times a day. But I have no idea what size caplets they are. looks like there is 2 mg per caplet, so you need to cut them down. Probably a half would be ok. What is the D for in the ingredients? We prefer using pepto bismol because it doesn't slow down the gut too much and coats the stomach. Boiled rice and turkey burger are the meals of choice for a day or so for mild diarrhea.
