Customer Question
Hi! Both of my dogs...
Hi! Both of my dogs have had HGE recently. One weighs 30 pounds and the other weighs 5. I have a few 250 mg Metronidazole left over from my 30 pound dog. My 5 pound dog started showing symptoms tonight of HGE again. Can I split the metronidazole in fourths and give her one?

I am very sorry to see that you have not received a response to your initial question before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed.

How is your companion at this time? What symptoms are you seeing currently? Are these round tablets you have on hand of the metronidazole?

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment? Addition of medication?
