upset tummy

Does anyone know if it is ok to give Pepto to their cat? My vet said to try some imodium, but all I have on hand is Pepto.

I wouldn't try substituting any medication, even though they might be very similar i'd recommend that you consult your vet, too be on the safe side .

I'm not quite sure on the Pepto for cats, in my cat/dog medical book, it said to try Kaeopectate for the cats so I'm not sure on Pepto. I know our vet said we could give Pepto to the dogs but I honestly don't know with the cats.
I hope your kitty is feeling better, Nikki!

I wouldn't give Pepto without speaking to your vet. It can contain salicylates, which are aspirin derivatives and can cause problems, so it shouldn't be used for pets except under veterinary supervision.

Oh thanks guys! I didn't actually end up giving him anything. He has gotten better but now there is a completely different problem with him. I'll have to make a new post. Its not health related... just... annoying! I'll make sure to get some imodium.

As Steph mentioned, Pepto contains salicylates and is toxic to cats. Kaopectate used to be the home remedy of choice (after vet consultation) but the new Kaopectate (at least for the last few years) now contains bismuth subsalicylate, the same drug used in Pepto and therefore, toxic as well.
