Cassie had HGE a few years ago. It was horrible! She was so sick. She spent 2 nights at the vet on iv's. She had no energy, wouldn't eat anything or drink anything, and had the scariest diarrhea I have ever seen. Fortunately, she made a full recovery (although it took a few weeks for her to get back to normal).
The treatment for it was very similar to what you are doing. Cassie was on a few different meds including the Flagyl. I reintroduced food very slowly. She ate 5 tiny meals of chicken and rice for a week or so and we gradually increased it. I reintroduced kibble, but switched to a new one since they don't know exactly what causes HGE.
