I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. To answer you directly, yes, antibiotics in the fluoroquinolone class such as marbofloxacin (Zeniquin) can cause gastrointestinal distress soon after instituting the antibiotic, during administration, or days following the end of the course of therapy. Yes, Max needs to be re-evaluated by his vet. A raging appetite isn't consistent with renal failure but, instead, diabetes mellitus, hyperthyroidism, or Cushing's disease. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
