Antibiotics And Appetite

Recommended Posts

Gracie has been on amoxicillin for a week for her ruptured anal gland. It is healing slowly. She's had less of an appetite for the past 4 days or so. Won't eat all her dogfood but will still eat cookies.

She doesn't appear to be in any distress, seems happy. Hasn't run any yard zoomies though.

I think the antibiotics gave her loose bowels so she's on acidophilis (sp.).

Will antibiotics cause a dog to have less of an appetite?

Monty, who otherwise will eat everything and anything, has always done poorly with antibiotics. My vet now has me give him Reglan (metaclopramide?) 1/2 hour before his antibiotic, and his appetite is again excellent. Ask your vet about this, I understand it is a very mild drug and can be very helpful.

Good luck!
