Michele I got this stuff from the vet for Rocky when he has diahorrea, we have no idea why he seems to get a bout of diahorrea but this stuff works a treat. The vet and me have looked back at the dates when Rocky has been unwell with diahorrea/mucus and it has always been on the second week of Tonys trips working away.

Support of the natural intestinal balance in dogs. Contains probiotics and montmorillonite, a natural binding agent This product may also be helpful for your dog during stressful events such as travelling, visits to the veterinary clinic, or weaning of puppies.

Canikur® Pro specially formulated for dogs, contains three ingredients including both probiotics and prebiotics, that work together to support your dog's gut function;

BioMos®-C – a prebiotic unique to Canikur® Pro, which works to help give the good bacteria in the gut every chance to flourish. Probiotic – helps repopulate the good bacteria in the gutMontmorillonite – a highly porous and absorbant clay material. Montmorillonite has the ability to aborb toxins and pathogens, including viruses and has been shown to be 20 times more effective than kaolin at absorbing reovirus.Contains a strain of probiotic bacteria which is naturally present in the healthy gut. Also contains Bio-Mos-C (prebiotic), which supports the growth of beneficial bacteria. Most dogs love the tasty meat flavour and will eat the paste straight from the syringe.

Canikur® Pro can be given alongside any prescription medicines that your vet may recommend.

It is maybe worth asking about. I cannot help you with imodium dosages sorry :(

I have used both at my vets suggestion. Every dog I have tried to give pepto to hated the taste so I got the chewables and fed it to her in a piece of bread. That worked for me. I would give my 30lb dog 1/2 chewable tablet. I gave my late Chi, Little Lady, Imodium at my vets suggestion. I filled the smallest syringe (I think 5 cc's) for her dose. She was 3.5 LBS. I would call the vet and ask what the proper dosage is though.

We always gave our Shepherds Imodium for their oh so sensitive stomachs!! It worked for us. We also ran into the issue with them not liking pepto bismal, but if you have a syringe you could always do that as necessary.
