Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
Buscopan is not commonly used but can help to reduce diarrhoea and abdominal cramping.
It is given at a dose of 0.5mg/kg, so a 7.5kg dog needs 3.75mg, or about 1/3 of a 10mg tablet.It should never be used where we think there may be an intestinal obstruction.It can cause constipation and other symptoms such as blurred vision.I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any further questions,Linda.
