I am sorry you are concerned about Jedidiah. I am also sorry you did not get help from a Just Answer expert before now. I just came online and saw your question.

Do you still need help with him? How is he doing?

Cipro is not a good antibiotic in dogs; it is not well absorbed when taken by mouth in dogs, so it may not help him.

That wasnt much of an anwser so should i at least try it?Well. I did try it i couldnt wait any longer not all nite as sick as he was so i tried it and so far it is really helping

Glad to hear it. It isn't not well absorbed in most dogs, but it sounds like he is one of the dogs it helps so good for him. Your questions is still open so please let me know if you have more questions.
