Just like us, dogs can get diarrhea, indigestion, or an upset stomach.

And, just like us, dogs can get relief by taking bismuth subsalicylate.

Corrective Suspension is a brand formulated specifically for dogs, but dogs can also take the same off-the-shelf Pepto Bismol that we do.

Pepto-Bismol Dosage For Dogs: The recommended dosage is 1 teaspoon for every 10 pounds, according to Dr.

Klein. It can be offered to the dog every 6-to-8 hours, but if your dog still has diarrhea after a few doses, stop the medication and call your veterinarian.

Generally, an adult average sized dog at 12 months of age, weighs about twice their weight at 4 months of age, or 2.5x the weight at 14 weeks.

Adult giant breeds grow more slowly, take longer to mature, and don't reach adult growth until they're at least 16-18 months old.

✔️

A fairly accurate calculation you can do to predict an adult height for your puppy is to multiply her height at six months by 100 and divide that answer by 75.

For example, a puppy who is 8 inches at the shoulder when she is 6 months old should be between 10.5 and 11 inches at the shoulder when she is finished growing.

✔️

Check his ears.

If your puppy's ears stand up when he gets excited, they probably will stand permanently by the time he is 6-months-old.

Another way to tell if your pup's ears are likely to stand is by observing where they are set on the head.

Long-term behavior changes are usually positive if the spay or neuter was performed at a young age.

For example, male dogs may become less aggressive.

This means that some dogs will "calm down" over the next few months, while others may take years to calm down.
