Is Pepto Bismol for dogs safe if they are being treated for Parvo?

The treatment of Parvo for my puppy got started today. She is given IV fluids and antibiotics. We can take her to home every day. I was wondering if I can give her some Pepto Bismol or anything like such to ease her nausea and vomiting. I just want to make her feel comfortable. Is Pepto Bismol for dogs safe if they are being treated for Parvo? Please advice appropriately. Thanks.

    Pepto bismol is majorly given for controlling soft stool of the puppy. I gave pepto bismol to my 5 weeks old Chihuahua pup and it was of no use in easing the nausea of the puppy. Pepto bismol is generally used for diminishing the effects and gradually killing the bacteria which are responsible for causing ulcers and gas in the stomach of the doggie pal of yours. There is no sign mentioned where we can suggest that it will reduce the dog’s nausea or the frequency of vomits. The major element of pepto bismol- Bismuth subsalicylate can cause some serious side effects on the doggie, which generally includes high amount of allergy on the dogs. So, I guess, you should consult a vet before administering the dosage of pepto bismol on the pet puppy, since the puppy’s digestive system is super weak and the pepto bismol, if given, in high dosage can seriously cast ill effects over the digestive tract of the pet puppy.
