Sleeping Dog
Pepto Bismol  can help with an upset stomach and vomiting. Use this only for dogs; it contains an aspirin-like substance that is bad for cats. The dose for a dog (either liquid or tablets) is a child’s dose for every 40 pounds of body weight every six hours. For example: A 10-pound dog would receive one-quarter of a child’s dose, and an 80-pound dog would receive twice the amount of a child’s dose.

Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
