Metronidazole is also known as flagyl. We used it a lot with Wolf who had stress colitis sometimes after boarding. It is an antibiotic so your vet (I hope) is considering how it might affect the treatment of Cheyenne's ear.

all the best,
Mary Jane

If the loose stools are caused by an antibiotic, I would wonder about giving another abx to prevent it. Flagyl does have anti-inflammatory properties.

Have you been giving probiotics?

eta: Pepto can also be used, it's a mild anti-inflammatory as well.

I like to space the probiotics several hours between antibiotics doses. Say, if breakfast & antibiotics is at 9am, give the probiotics at 2pm, if dinner and antibiotics is a 6pm. Then, a lil more probiotics right before bedtime-- or a heaping tablespoon of plain yogurt as bedtime snack.

Tons and tons of very positive energy flowing out to Cheyenne!

No...haven't given probiotics....we just started those ear drops the day I took her to the vet for the lump (she also had had an ear infection)...and to be honest I never really associated ear drops as being an antibiotic I would need to do that for. The vet did put her on the Metro. They claim none of this is due to the ear meds..and also that this can be given in conjunction. So...I'm really not sure what the root of this is.
Anyway...back tomorrow morning for x-rays...prayering for good results! Thank yo for all the prayers and well wishes!!

Here are the results:
we have a collapse of a lung lobe. He said it's a small lobe...and that the good news is that the other lobe grew considerably to adequately compensate. He said...very common due to the high hw she suffered from. Only one tiny area that caught his eye...could be something...could be artifact. He said he typically sees a smattering of spots when it's spread from mammary cancer and he was optimistic regarding this spot...but duly noted it and wants the specialist to eyeball it. Comparing the x-rays from last year there was a huge difference. She was full of the affects of pneumonia last year...pretty compromised going into surgery...and we were clear this year...and showing good air flow. She tolerated chest x-rays very well...even a view on her back...compared to last year when she turned blue during the procedure.

I have disc in hand...and next step is to see specialist. As I was walking out the Dr. said he feels like she has a few lives left smile

Miss Cheyenne was blue after Xrays last year-that sounds horrible.
