    Pepto-Bismol is safe to most dogs. But according to AKC’s Chief Veterinary Officer Dr. Jerry Klein, it is not recommended to use it because the salicylates in the medication could cause gastric bleeding, and the bismuth in the medication can turn the stool black, which may mask any resulting gastric bleeding. Dogs with bleeding disorders and dogs who are pregnant or nursing should not take any form of bismuth subsalicylate, nor should dogs taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents.
