Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How much does she weigh?

What dose of Imodium and Flagyl did you give? How often? For how long?

Was she wormed at any stage?

Is she losing weight?

What do her stools look like? Any blood or mucus?
