Can Antibiotics Cause Loose Bowels?


Recommended Posts

Gracie has been on Amoxicillin for her ruptured anal gland. and on Rimadyl (just a few days of that for pain).

She has been eating well, however her poop has gotten runny.

Could this be from the antibiotic?

Can I give her some immodium each day until she's done with the course of Amoxicillin?

In my experience with Mr. Staph-Monty, YES. The antibiotics are hard on their tummies. Our vet didn't have us give much for it as it cleared up. Check with your vet re Immodium.

I think part of it is the loss of their natural bacteria etc in their bowels, so yogurt probably helps.

Thanks! Please give Monty some early morning ear rubs for me. :)
