Began four hours after eating out and having a salad at a well known restaurant, Have continued to suffer with Intermittent anorxia, gas and blouting and frequent loose and or diarrhea stools.. Some days are better than others. Have had two sets of stool cultures, of which one came back positive for blastocystis hominosis. Have been on cipro one week, bactrim one week and finally flagyll two weeks. Will have a few days where I feel better only to again feel poorly with above listed symptoms.
nausea, diarrhea, and/or metallic taste in the mouth. Mix that with anxiety and a panic attack and you have the situation you have just described . Maybe, and i doubt it, you had an overdose but Metronidazole does not seem to be especially toxic in the case of an overdose. So i don't think it's something to worry about too much especially if the symptoms are gone now. Metronidazole have a strong interaction with alcohol and can also have produced the vomiting.
Nowdays i'm experiencing a loose stool and sometimes with dark color, tired body and brakish mouth with unconfirtiblity and inflamation in my stomach and bak, also my apitite is not good.

Whe had a cat that had giarrdia, and he had diarrhea and kept throwing up foam and would not eat. As soon as he got off the meds he was fine, and tested negative .
While I was there I started getting diarrhea after almost every time I ate. I went to the doctor and they tested me for parasites, but the results came back negative. They suggested I start taking fiber pills, which helped but did not solve the problem. I went back to the doctor a few months later and the doctor prescribed me cipro (antibiotic), but didn't test me for anything. This definitely helped, my diarrhea after each meal stopped.
Hello Athena, I would advise you to take the kitten to a vet. If she's been having diarrhea for three days so will be dehydrated and may need to be on an IV. I'm not sure, but the vet will be able to advise you. You may have given her too much metronidazole . 500 mg per day sounds like a lot for a kitten's tiny body. This is not a professional medical opinion, but I strongly urge you to go and seek a professional vet to help the kitten. Otherwise she may not survive.
My boxer has had diarrhea for months - initially was a parasite, but has been on panacure 3 times, metronidazole 3 times, and prednisone, plus Prescription Diet Dry Food, Natural Lamb and Rice Dry Food....it has not cleared up. The "stools" are either formed slightly but very wet, or just a lump of "pudding", and always a yellowish color. We have also tried dog pro-biotics in between the above treatments.
In his first trip to the vet he tested positive for giardia and coccidia. We treated both with Flagyl and Albon, and after two weeks the diarrhea only seemed to be getting worse and there was blood in his stool. We took him back to the vet and again he tested positive for coccidia. The vet put him on Metro for 10 days, and a diet of overcooked white rice and grilled chicken. Once he was on the rice diet the diarrhea cleared up.
After taking her to the second vet she was diagnosed with giardia and given a de wormer and placed on metronidazole and lactulose. I stopped giving the lactulose was stools became watery and brownish/yellow. I have finished the metronidazole but the diarrhea is still persisting. I don't know what to do anymore and I'm looking for some advice I feel terrible for this kitten and I don't want her to pass.
When I stood up and walk a few feet I felt a cramp and a sensation like I was going to have diarrhea. I ran to my car and could feel it oozing out so I got a towel from my console and sat on it until I could make it to the nearest restroom. The diarrhea kept coming every few minutes and continued until I walked into the place where the reunion was being held. It stopped until we arrived back home. I was up all night and for the next two days it was coming every 10 to 15 minutes.
The vet took a fecal smear, which was negative. Gave him Metronidazole 500 mg bid for 10 days and Foriflora for 30 days.No difference. She then tested him again for worms (negative) and put him on a dewormer just in case (Drontal Plus and Panacur). Still no improvement. He cont'd with loose stools daily and occasional watery diarrhea. A fecal culture was done to test for bacteria, which came up negative. We changed his diet to Iams low residue puppy.

My 8 month old kitten has had diarrhea for about a month and a half now. He is growing, thriving, playing, eating and otherwise seems quite healthy. He did come from a holistic breeder where he has never been immunized (we are waiting for the diarrhea to clear up before we get him his shots).I have tried fortiflora with little success and now the vet has put him on metronidazole with no success (he's been on for 4 days). The vet did a stool analysis but he was negative for parasites.
Im 57 and had a di vinci robotic assisted hysterectomy 11 days ago. Ive had diarrhea ever since. Taken immodium which produces a soft loose stool then next day diarrhea is back. No blood, some mucus, sometimes green, sometimes brown. Im eating from the BRAT diet. Drinking pedratic electrolytes, lots of water, taking prescription strength potassium and calicum. Not taking any pain meds as my stomach does not like them. Every other day I take immodum.
I was taking clindamycin 300mg cap every 8 hrs for 7 days for recurring staph boils I had. I finished my course and had diarrhea all week on the med. I thought the diarrhea was normal because it was an antibiotic, but now I still have diarrhea after a week. I feel like it won't go away. The diarrhea is not bloody or mucous like, and I feel no abdominal pain. I'm taking acidophilus and eating plain yogurt. Any suggestions?
After parasites are ruled out with multiple fecal tests , a cat of eleven years of age could have Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), food allergy or g.i. lymphoma. A trial of prednisone is in order unless you are willing to have an endoscopy procedure done with a specialist. Weight loss is common in IBD and lymphoma and endoscopy with a biopsy will reveal an answer.
He also started the temp spike, lethargy, off food and bloody diarrhea - but when put on Metronidazole would clear up for about a month or so. I brought the 2 kittens in the house after the mom died. We then found a 4 week old kitten about 4 months later. He was kept in the barn. Doing great. But we decided to keep him and brought him into the house. Had him wormed with drontal etc. Well this new kitten started showing the bloody diarrhea, temp & lethargy.
fluid therapy with dexamethazone, and antibiotics. The antibiotic's that I use for diarrhea are Metronidazole or Tylan. I hope you dog is eating and drinking normally, but if not, she will have to see the veterinarian again. Adult dogs can go with out food for a few days without difficulty but puppies cannot since they have so little storage fat and can develop hypoglycemia very easily.
Well about two weeks ago I began to have diarrhea every night. It would only happen at night though and it wasn't painful and nor did my stomach hurt like it normally would if I hate something my body didn't particularly care with. Well, about a couple days after that the gas began to get worse and eventually I was just kinda farting out yellow like mucous. I don't get the diarrhea every single night, but it is pretty much consistent. I didn't have it twice within the past two weeks.
Your dog has chronic colitis and should be dewormed with panacur and treated with prednisone and metronidazole and a diet called w/d (small meals). If this doesnt work or it works and the condition returns he should have a colonoscopy to get a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.
00 am) panting heavily and needs to go outside because of his diarrhea. Unfortunately, we have also had some pretty bad messes on the rugs. He also has the heavy panting periods at other times of the day. We are at our wits ends! Any ideas? Thank you.
He took one pill tonight of Metronidazole and one pkg of Forti Flora on his supper. Doc gave him 3 days of Albon. A full bottle of Pepto that we are to give until gone. Six days of Forti Flora and 5 days of Metronidazole. Poor guy has had loads of antibiotics this year. He had infected/ impacted anal glands that were treated for over a month last spring. He had an ear infection that came back twice before we got it cleared up, late last spring.
HI, I have had diarrhea for 8 days now, the doctor gave me antibiotics called Metronidazole 400 mg and i have seen no change. I have had fever, ear infection, very dry mouth, stomach cramps, light headeness. There is no blood in my stools. Though I stool straight after i even try to eat. I have tried fasting and lost 4 kilos but still didnt kill it. All i can eat at the moment is bananas and dry biscuits and even them are starting to turn my stomach.
which cleared with metronidazole.). We all had fever, severe watery diarrhea (10+ BMs a day) and all symptoms I listed above, lasting for at least four weeks for everyone, and up to four months for some! My diarrhea went down to three to six stools a day, and stayed that way. The symptoms are disabling because along with the diarrhea I feel weak, exhausted, achy, and sick all day - like I have the "stomach flu".
I ate something that really upset my stomach and vomited up the food and came down with a bad case of stomach cramping, fever, and diarrhea, stools with mucus (but no blood). The local doctor diagnosed it as dysentery - both amoebic and bacterial dysentery. She used a microscope to make this diagnosis. She prescribed me 500 mg Metronidazole - to be taken 3 times a day over 10 days. I am now into the 7th day of treatment. My diarrhea (very watery) persists and so does he stomach cramping.
I feel for you because I have fissures plus a bad case diarrhea and hemorrhoids. I had colon cancer a year and a half ago plus a few months before that I had my gall bladder removed due to infection and stones.. The removal of it left me with diarrhea so I went for a colonoscopy and found I had cancer. They took out about a foot of my colon. I am glad to be alive but I have diarrhea every day and the pain is unbearable.
What are they doing for that non-functioning gallbladder with gallstones? That is probably the source of the diarrhea. I would not leave that thing in there to create more problems. I listened to "IBS" dx's for years and endured off and on diarrhea. When they finally had to take my gallbladder out it was packed with hundreds of stones and inflamed. I think the recurring pancreatitis I am now having is due to leaving those stones in for so long.
It sounds very similar to the pain I had with my gallbladder becoming blocked by gallstones, except it took several years of intermittent pain and diarrhea/constipation to get to the stage of constant pain and severe fatigue (although I was fatigued for the last year before it collapsed). You may be getting stones stuck in your bile ducts, too, especially with the light colored stool, and this could be very dangerous.
