There has been some discussion about Pepto/Imodium. I need to share w/you all that Imodium should be discussed w/your vet before medicating your dog. It does have adverse affects such as slowing down the intestinal movement to a near stop which, in animals, you do not want to do, and which Pepto does not do. If a 24 hr fast from their food, rice and cooked hamburger doesn't begin to show signs of helping the situation, you need to contact a vet. There are numerous reasons why this is occurring. And, kaopectate was changed about 3-4 yrs ago and contains a subsalicyl. ingredient which is toxic to cats if given too frequently or dosage is inadequate.
Always read the ingredients and don't take it for granted that whatever's good for us must be good for them or if it's good for the dog the cat'll do fine. They are so totally different. If any of the ingred. are not familiar to you always double-check with your vet or the company. On many websites that show the medicine you can enlarge it to read the ingreds., but always check w/your vet. You can't go wrong. Anything w/salicylates can be extremely toxic to cats. It's a form of aspirin which a cat can actually have but in very low dose and approx. 3 days apart. I do not know if tabs contain salicylate but if they don't you can alway crush it and dilute w/water. Hope this helps.
