Dr. Williams,

I noticed that you mentioned stomach ulcers as possible cause
of Nala's death. My 5 year old male stopped eating and is
currently being treated with Metronidazole .2ML twice daily.
Would this be a sufficient medication to treat ulcers if any
were present, or do I have to ad Amoxi to address the
possiblity of ulcers. He's doing much better on Gerber's
chicken and the Metronidazole, I'm just not sure if he has an
ulcer, and if so, are we treating it?

Appreciate your thoughts,
