Metronidazole is in liquid form. I am afraid to give him anything other than the baby food, chicken, or rice. For the past 5 days, he is eating baby food only. I kept on trying to feed him the jar that has Metronidazole mixed in, he would sniff it and walk away. By 3pm, I surrender! I opened a new jar, scooped out 1/5 of it, and mixed in some steamed rice that I know he loves. He gobbled it up within 5 seconds. I took him out for a walk around 5pm and he is being his playful self again. I am so HAPPY!! I guess he was too hungry to move in the morning. I feel terrible for starving him....
I am going to call the vet tomorrow to see if it is absolutely necessary to complete the 7 days of Metronidazole. I wonder if it is as important as human's antibiotics that he must complete the entire course. Since he doesn't have any stool today (I guess he is not eating enough to have any output), I don't know if he is feeling better or not. I have not reached out to my breeder yet. Thanks for the great suggestion. I will give her a call tomorrow.
Thank you for all the well wishes too. I have no idea it is so taxing to have a puppy!
