Subject: [ferrethealth] Is it safe to give Pepto Bismol and how often?
To: <>

I know Pepto Bismol was safe to give a few years ago but I read that the formula was since changed and I don't have an old bottle to compare ingredients with. I have liquid Carafate but she does not like it and stresses when I try to give it. I added small amounts of Ferretone and even whipping cream hoping she would like it and that I could eliminate them after a few 'doctored' doses, but she still stresses too much. I learned tonight that she likes Pepto Bismol so I need to know if it is safe to give and if it should be given before each meal.

Sadly, the stress from a second round of Clavamox and Baytril (for a previous case of bronchitis and pneumonia and then elevated eosinophils and maybe lungworm) caused her to start grinding her teeth two nights ago. She doesn't like Baytril either. I'm sure several blood draws and x-rays didn't help. Our vet discontinued the Clavamox, Baytril and Panacur and I didn't ask for Amoxi and Biaxin because I don't know if she has Helicobacter and I'm sure giving them would cause more stress at this point.
