Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. I am sorry Sammy is not feeling well. If he is still eating and drinking normally, it might be helpful to put him on a bland diet for a couple of days to help with intestinal inflammation.

Here is information on dosing of metronidazole you have asked for.
