Probably, but ... I always wonder how effective antibiotics are against viruses, because I've always understood they're not, but I may have to rethink that. Jamie was really sick last week (vomiting/diarrhea), and my vet gave him antibiotic and antispasmodic shots, which cleared it up within 24 hours. The blood tests revealed that he had human influenza virus, as my vet suspected, as it's going around again here. My next-door neighbor told me today that their dog (Jamie's best buddy) also has it. I kept Jamie inside this week, so Aki may have gotten it from human contact, too. Their vet also administered antibiotic shots.
