Peptosyl is a liquid formula to aid in the treatment of gastroenteritis and diarrhoea in dogs and horses. Peptosyl liquid will line the stomach and intestine to soothe the gut and relieve the symptoms of gastroenteritis
Registered Name NV Peptosyl Bismuth Salicylate Oral Suspension
Composition Bismuth salicylate 17.5 mg/mL; bentonite.
Actions Antidiarrhoeal. The insoluble salt is converted to bismuth carbonate and sodium salicylate after oral administration. It lines the mucosal surface, adsorbs toxic compounds and has protective, antacid and antiseptic properties; it is mildly astringent.
Peptosyl is nonantibiotic; it will not cause bacterial resistance to develop. It is nontoxic in animals and humans, displays antibacterial activity, decreases water loss, and may also help reduce the pain of inflammatory bowel diseases.
Bismuth salicylate and other bismuth salts have been shown to inhibit plaque formation of enteric rotavirus in vitro. The salicylate component has an antiprostaglandin synthetase effect which may enhance its action in controlling acute secretory diarrhoea.
Bentonite is a natural clay earth with properties similar to activated charcoal, and the ability to bind bacterial endotoxin.
Indications Gastroenteritis and diarrhoea in dogs and horses.
Warnings Safety in pregnant animals has not been established. Faecal colour may appear darker and be misinterpreted as melaena.
Precautions If the condition does not resolve with appropriate symptomatic therapy, further diagnostic evaluation should be considered.

Helping an upset tummyBy: Janet Henderson on 14 March 2020I use Peptosyl if my dogs have tummy ache or diarrhea. Their pain appears to quickly subside after being given the recommended dose of Peptosyl. I keep it in the fridge and shake thoroughly before administering.

PeptosylBy: Sue smit on 4 October 2018Your service has been great but you advised that you were unable to send it to New Zealand, we spoke to our customs and they have no problem with it, we would still really like to get some as we can’t get it here. We would also like some malaseb medicated shampoo one litre would you be able to that.
