Hope she feels better. I know how stressed sick pups can make their owners feel. I went through a UTI with Lady and felt very stressed too. I just wish they could talk and tell us about what is going on!

The asprin ingredient in the Pepto is probably just fine. Asprin is toixic to cats. Not dogs. Mylacon (generic ok too) is great for gas. It is not digested so it is a pretty same medicine. You can get infant drops at any pharmacy. I do think some meals are just too much rich food for them....they love it so but it doesn't digest well. Wheat bread, hamburger buns, etc are not good for the dog--for many small ones it is a hard thing to digest. That can make her vommit too,

Has she been dewormed or tested for worms?

Got back from the vet & she gave her Cerenia for the painful stomach irritation & Sucralfate to help calm & heal her stomach. She said that she didn't think her stomach has had enough time to heal after that aweful UTI and wants me to definitely continue the cranberry and Fortiflora. She DOES NOT want me to use the ACV as it's making things worse with all the acid. I haven't been using it anyway. So now I'm mixing a little canned pumpkin with ZP in very tiny meals. Will feed several tiny meals a day today to give her tummy a break. She definitely seems better, like her stomach isn't bothering her. I think that Pepto helped her this morning because I haven't heard her stomach since, but the vet put a scope to her stomach & said "Oh my, here it is and asked if I could hear her stomach when she pushed on it. It is full of gas."

Thanks for all your concern guys. It's greatly appreciated. Now maybe I'll/we'll be able to have a good nights sleep tonight?! Lol

BTW--She's allergic to poultry & I've never fed her rice, so a food change wouldn't have been a good idea.

I have given Pepto before with no issues.

I would also try a little yogurt
