NOTE: There has been a recent change in Kaopectate. Due to lead level concerns in the old formula the manufacturer of Kaopectate has changed the active ingredient to bismuth subsalicylate. Salicylates (e.g. aspirin, pepto bismol and now kaopectate) should only be administered to cats under veterinary supervision. Some dogs are also sensitive to salicylates.
WARNING: Tylenol (Acetaminophen) is NOT RECOMMENDED for dogs or cats!
