The vet prescribed me some meds and the nurse explained to

This answer was rated:

The vet prescribed me some meds and the nurse explained to me that some of the meds should be given with food and some without (she was specific while I was there). Unfortunately, now that I'm home, I don't remember exactly which one was which in regards to "with or without food". I'm hoping that you, as a vet, can help me out with this if I give you the medicines' names and dosage. There are five. (1) Bebe Bac Pet Gel 15gm (probiotic0-30I), says 2 gr by mouth once a day until finish. (2) Amoxicillin 100 mg Tablets, give 1 tablet orally every 12 hours for 7 days. (3) Metronidazole 250 mg, give 1/2 tablet orally once a day for 6 days. (4) SAMeLQ-100 Chewable Tablets, give 1 tablet once a day for 30 days (this is the only med that specifies meals) Tablets should be given on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before meal. (5) Rebound Recuperation Formul Cat, give 33 mL once a day. I'm needing a response ASAP as I'm supposed to start his treatment today. Thank you.

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment while I review your medications and type my response.

Give all the following WITH food:

1. Bebe Bac Pet Gel (probiotics)

2. Amoxicillin

3. Metronidazole (this pill is quite bitter tasting, so I recommend putting it in a meatball of canned food before giving it, to disguise the flavor)

As you know, give the SAMe 1 hour before feeding.

The Rebound Recuperation Formula is a nutrition supplement that you can give at any time during the day.

Best of luck to you and Ikus.
