Subject: RE: Bo's Helicobacter Not Improving

I agree with Mike on the treatment and also that Flagyl is horrid, awful
nasty stuff - taste a drop (I did). I hide it in very warm very diluted
Duck Soup - stir in a nice dollop of Nutrical also, if yours does not
have insulinoma. Definitely get him rehydrated - and get the vet to show
you how. (It involves injecting some sterile IV fluid under the skin -
not particularly painful, and the improvement is dramatic). Also, they
hate the stuff, but pepto bismol is very good for the ulcers ... wear
old clothes and I hope you like pink ... good luck to you and Bo ...
