No, not sure what that is. I'll look it up. Thanks.

Metronidazole is commonly used as an anti-diarrheal medication that treat inflammation of the large intestine. It is also effective against certain protozoal and bacterial infections such as Giardia, Trichomonas and Balantidium coli.

Sorry to hear that. I hope it's just a quick bug or something that goes away quickly.
Sometimes I have found that hard boiled eggs help to firm things up a bit when the dogs have had a bad tummy and they are very palatable so she might eat it.

Hope she feels better soon

This sounds like a plan. Egg salad sandwich for me, and a plain egg for her.

SOLID POOP! The little things can sometimes make us so happy!

Linda says I can forget the hard boiled egg for Annie because she has always refused it in the past. I can still have my egg salad sandwich for lunch though.

Will try to withhold her food until dinner to give the tummy a bit of a rest.

Glad to hear it!!
With an EPI dog you learn to take a close interest in these things. We developed a scale of 1-10 in order to keep a record of how Eddie was doing when his digestion was very bad Sorry - might be TMI if it is breakfast time with you....
Hope she eats ok this morning

BMs have been fine, but still isn't eating well. Of course the insulin dosage is "fun" when she eats various amounts. O'well, we are managing
