Finding a good diarrhea medicine for a dog is frustrating. For Fido’s upset stomach, or similar symptoms, the treatment options can make your head spin! Up to 0.1mg (1/10th of a milligram) of Imodium AD per pound, given every 8 hours, can work but read about safer methods. Complicated canine bowel problems can’t be cured with conventional over-the-counter diarrhea meds. We’ll talk about the merits of OTC products for dogs as well as natural remedies. Imodium, and similar solutions, should be limited to 2 days or less. The use of human medications to treat pets is fraught with hazards. Medications meant for people are serious business when given to a pet dog. That’s why we favor natural alternatives which are much safer and more sustainable treatment methods. A good compromise is to consider a quality anti-diarrhea liquid medicine formulated specifically for dogs. Another over-the-counter product that’s used to reduce diarrhea in dogs is Pepto Bismol. Vaccination of dogs against the rabies virus is required by law in nearly every state. Even where it is not required by state law, most cities and counties have passed their own rabies vaccine requirements. Rabies vaccination of cats is not always required by law, but all cats should still be vaccinated. In most areas of the United States pet owners are required to license their pets with a City or County Animal Control Facility. In nearly all cases, a current rabies vaccination is required before you can license your pet. Often dogs are the only pets that require a license, but in many places it is required for cats as well. Check with your local animal control facility for more information. Pet Vet provides proof of vaccination with every rabies vaccine given, this proof can be used to procure a license.

Added May 7,2012: Diamond had incorrectly reported the production codes (to determine if you had an affected bag). I have now updated the article to reflect the correct codes. Added May 18, 2012: The recall has been expanded to include Diamond Naturals Small Breed Adult dog Lamb and Rice as well (see below). For the last couple of weeks I have been writing about several recalls on foods manufactured by Diamond. Initially, there was a recall on Diamond Naturals Lamb and Rice. This was followed by a recall of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul. Then, there was a recall on Diamond Puppy Food, and now the recall has been expanded to include several other brands, including Kirkland food sold at Costco. A few weeks ago, I had a number of my Facebook fans ask me if I had heard if there was a recall on Kirkland dog food. But, many of you were suspicious, because Kirkland brand food was manufactured at a Diamond plant.
