Severe diarrhea possibly caused by antibiotics

Post by pipi on Sat Aug 12, 2017 6:47 pm

Hello everyone,

We have an emergency - our little girl Borik (age: 3yrs) has severe diarrhea. We think it could be caused by the antibiotic cream (Isaderm - contains an antibiotic (fusidic acid) and a steroid (betamethasone). We used this on her yesterday to treat an open wound on her back which has been diagnosed as ulcerative dermatitis. Since last night her poos are pretty much liquid, pale yellow colour.
She is drinking water (we added probiotics to the water, she also has another bowl with home made electrolyte drink, and there we gave her some kitten milk replacement earlier which she seemed to like). She is eating a bit - we gave her rolled oats and some dried brown bread. Nothing seems to be helping. The poos are just as runny as they were in the morning.
We are taking her to the vet in the morning (it is midnight here).
Has anybody dealt with a situation like this? Is there anything else we can do to help her?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

You did everything right.  Sorry we didn't get back to you sooner.  Hopefully you got the the vet okay and  she doing well.  It's possible if she licked a lot of the cream of her back, that it could cause loose stools but it could also be an intestinal infection, which I'm more inclined to think it is based  on the  fact that nothing helped.  Let us know how she is.
