Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you 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:

Was the pill an antibiotic? Metronidazole?

Did he have any vomiting, gagging, retching or lip licking?

What other medications is he on specifically just now?

Did his vet recheck his kidney values? Were they worse?

Since you only provided a history about Jake, did you have any specific questions?
