    Question Using "METRONIDAZOLE"

    Hello,

    Many people have used Metro for treating bulldog issues. I have used it many times before and know that it works. With a pack of EBD's , living on irrigation property...they end up getting a variety of GI issues. I buy a big enough bottle so that I can keep extra on hand for when a issue pops up (or out...).

    I'm about out of the prescription brand and while searching for sources to buy more I see that this medication is made and sold by Thomas Labs. Except this is listed for fish. The product is a 250mg METRONIDAZOLE tablet with no other ingredients.

    Does anyone use this "generic" version?

    Everything I can find shows this is the exact same product?

    just doesn't require a prescription...

    Good Day~

    I'm pretty positive you can use the fish metronidazole as it's the same exact drug, just "marketed" for fish.

    I don't think I've ever heard of it. What type of bulldog issues is it used for?

    Hi,

    Metronidazole is used as an anti-diarrheal medication that treat inflammation of the large intestine in dogs and cats

    Hi,

    "Metronidazole is a synthetic nitroimidazole compound used with increasing frequency in small animal practice. It is commonly prescribed in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, gastritis associated with helicobacter, giardiasis and empirical treatment of diarhea.

    Metronidazole has also been used successfully to alter intestinal flora in dogs with hepatic encephalopathy and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. Use of this antibacterial has been advocated in the treatment of osteomyelitis and periodontal diseases."

    @Blueberrys Mom, it's also a drug used widely in human beings...for intestinal infections as well as skin infections, and rosacea (in gel form it's called Metrogel)...Okay, now you have everything you need to know about metronidazole, eh?!

    I learn something new every day. In fact...we have a script for the Metrogel as well. I will just use that as well!
