Pepto

First of all, if I am posting this in the wrong section, please forgive!
Last night I cooked up some ground turkey to add to Z's kibble, which is Kirkland Signature Chicken and rice. I feel terrible now because I have known he has a sensitive tummy, but I honestly thought it would be bland enough for him to tolerate with ease, but he woke me 3x's thru the night to go out and had diarrhea each time. He has been out twice this morning and is still trying to 'go' altho I haven't seen any more coming out. So my question is can/should I give him a little bit of pepto and will it help with the diarrhea? There will definitely be no more turkey added from now on and I desperately want to make him feel better as quick as possible. I feel horrible for this!

Re: Pepto

Im not sure about the Pepto but you could just give him some Oatmeal until his stomach straightens up. I have done this and it works the turkey might just have to works its way thru his system.

Thank you for the quick reply! I will try the oatmeal!

Re: Pepto

Give him at least 12 hours after the last of the diarrhea before trying to give him anything to eat. The fact that he's still trying to go means that his system is still very upset and any more food will just make it worse. As the actual diarrhea seems to have stopped, I wouldn't give any Pepto or anything else at this time. Depending on what you've found that he can handle, I would start him back on a bland diet for a meal or two just to make sure that everything is working right again before putting him back on the kibble.

Re: Pepto

The only thing he has successfully eaten with no probs is scrambled eggs. Other than that he only eats his kibble without problems. At this point I worry about giving him the egg too. I will wait the 12 hours and see how he is.

Thanks!!

Re: Pepto

I agree with Elaine. His body is trying to expell what has upset it, so you don't want to stop it. Next I agree with the fasting, no food, just make sure he is drinking. Then go with a bland diet and slowly bring back the kibble.

Was there skin on the Turkey? The reason I ask is turkey is usually pretty well tolerated unless there is a problem with your dog and fats.

Re: Pepto

Would the Pepto or Immodium coat the stomach and help it settle?It doesn't always stop the diarrhea especially if he isn't going anymore.

Re: Pepto

No skin...just ground turkey. I browned it. Fed about 3-4 tablespoons with the kibble.

He is resting now, but I have to step out for a minute and when I do I imagine he will follow. I will watch him closely to see what he does and will report back. I do think I will give him the day to recoup without meds then gradually get him back to norm
