It is very unwise to a give an animal any medication meant for humans. Though sometimes veterinarians will prescribe unflavored tums for dogs, it is important to check with a veterinarian before going ahead as dogs have different reasons than humans for having upset stomachs and therefore need different treatment. Under no circumstances should flavored tums be given to an animal and the dyes and chemicals can be very harmful.
