Thanks. He weighs 5.3 lbs and she said it looks like he's done growing. He's so tiny, I don't know how all of you with teeny tiny ones do it!!!

Aw poor guy. Great that you found a decent vet though! Hopefully the diet will work and it won't come back.

Does anyone know anything about Metronidazole (Flagyl)? We had to get a special dose compounded because he is so small. My mom said she's given it to the dogs for tummy trouble before but I'm looking for other opinions!!

My lil boy is on metronidazole. Long term therapy for IBD. We've never had any problems. Of course I'd prefer him not on any Meds, but it keeps his tummy trouble under control. We are now able to go longer between doses. He was on it daily. Now I only have to use it during flare ups. He's on prednisone also. We have been able to cut way back on that as well. Each pup is different, but my experience with metro has been positive.

I have given it to Penny for diarrhea. It worked well for her! She was also on Zeniquin which killed other types of bacteria.

Thanks for reassuring me guys. I appreciate it so much

I hate having to give him meds, but on the bright side he's finally sleeping without his tummy making yucky noises.
