One of the most useful tips I give to senior dog guardians is the importance of a healthy digestive system. As your dog gets older, something as common as loss of appetite and diarrhea can become more serious and turn into a worse health concern. In Chinese medicine, the health of the stomach and the digestive system is central to overall health.
I recommend giving Pepcid to your dog every single day. Ask your vet for proper dosage.
An upset stomach is a hard symptom to detect in dogs. Usually the main symptom is loss of appetite, but there can be no symptoms at all. Giving Pepcid is a great, proactive preventative measure that has no harmful side effects. If you don’t want to give it everyday, be sure to always have it on hand. It is one of the items I recommend should be in your Senior Dog Care Kit!
