actually, a tsp (teaspoon) is 5ml and a tbsp (tablespoon) is 15ml.  I've never given the pups pepto, though, so I have no idea which dose is correct.

Hmmm........I know of someone who gives her dog tums.  But for the life of me I can't remember who that is..........lo lol.

I was recommended pepto for Keiko when she was really sick a number of years ago.  Tried it about 4 or 5 different times but she threw it back up each time. Was better w/o it...........l ol.  We were both pretty pink by the end.  i think it was either a tbsp or tsp for her, at 55 lbs.
