medications for puppy diarrhea
My puppy has had diarrhea for the past 24 hours....
She has been vet checked and is healthy but we were wondering how much immodium we can give her to help stop the diarrhea.
If your puppy continues to have diarrhea you need to take her back to your vet to find out what is causing it. Puppy diarrhea can be caused by a whole host of things - from eating something he shouldn't to a virus or bacterial illness such as Canine Parvovirus.
I would never recommend giving a pup (or any pet) medication without checking it out with your veterinarian first. Dosage can be tricky, especially for puppies and small dogs and if there is an infection, then an anti-diarrhea medication is not necessarily the way to go.
I can only recommend that you talk to your vet and decide together what the best options are. Best of luck, hope your puppy is much better soon.
