Hey, Milo! When I feel what's called "naseaus", (mommies are good in that they can tell these things) my mommy gives me one of those chewable flavored calcium tablets. She says they often work for her when she's feeling that icky way, so it might just work for me. I really like them and they do make me feel better.

I honestly do not know one way or the other - but remember to think about dosage whenever you are giving human meds to dogs! A 180-lb human is far different from a 35-lb dog - which is far different from a 7-lb dog! One tablet (or pill, or whatever) is probably far too much for a dog that is Milo's size.

Hi Milo smile
My Kristen gives me that pink stuff when my tum-tum is feeling icky. I don't like it - but it does clear up my icky tummy feeling.

Hi Milo, I hope you are feeling better by now. My vet recommends a childrens pepto bismal. I get one tablet and I am 66 pounds. It works when my tummy rumbles and such, but if I am really bad, I won't take food, medicine or anything, so my parents try to give me one before I get to that point. I hope this helps.

Two more things that help an upset tummy are ginger snaps and peppermints (we all LOVE Altoids). Both mint and ginger are very soothing natural remidies.

A vet once recommended Pepcid to me for a dog with an upset stomach. Rolaids are similar and are probably fine.

My vet saws Tums are good, but you have to realize that dogs' tummies have a lot less acidity than a human tummy! So they need a lot less than a human. I give my 70 lbs dog, Ranger, a half a tum. Seems to work fine wink
