agreed. Does doxycycline kill the good bacteria too? If so, that's a shame and I would imagine I should expect diarrhea any day now.
If that's the case, do people ever use probiotics afterwards that are the kitty equivalent to the Flora-Q sold for us (Flora-Q has Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus paracasei, and Streptococcus thermophilus) ? I suppose even if they do, then that could cause an overgrowth which would need treatment by a targeted, non-systemic antibiotic like rifaximin.
Also, Ollie just got his antibiotics, but ate half a can in one sitting beforehand, and the other half afterwards in one sitting. That's 3 cans of Wellness kitten food today. He really seems to like that food. I figured since he seems to like Wellness more than any others, I'll just feed him that for the moment to keep it simple for his digestive tract. I also left out a bowl of the Wellness kitten dry food in case he decides to try it, but so far he won't eat dry food. He didn't eat the Purina one food the humane society gave me and doesn't seem interested in the Wellness dry food either - but I figured I should leave some out for him just in case.
