Good news! Glad you found someone with whom you are comfortable.

Hope has been on Flagyl. Sure hope it does the trick for him!

I feel the same on size. Eden is 3 lbs., 3 ounces and seems a dinky dot. I cannot imagine what it would be like as some here who have adult/full grown 2 pound babies!

Flagyl is just an antibiotic. It should be fine. But sometimes it can cause of upset stomach in people. They tend to get diarrhea on antibiotics. I would think dogs would be the same, too, but I don't have any first hand experience giving it to a dog. (Hopefully, someone else will know for sure.) So, just be prepared it could get a little worse before it gets better.

They apparently use it to treat inflammation of the bowel that causes diarrhea. Yeah, my moms an RN and she told me about it but she told me sometimes meds are used differently for dogs than humans.

Yeah, I've only ever given Chloe Amoxicillin and she didn't have any of the side effects people usually do. You never know with dogs! Hopefully it will work for him!

Thank you all. I do have one more question: how quickly does the metro work? He took the first dose at 5:45, and he doesn't seem to have to go now. Could it work that quickly?
