    for cocci I dont think it is that big of a deal since you arent actually killing the cocci with the meds but killing them off by starving them. Its hard to explain. if she doesnt need it then dont give it.

    I figured its just with such a low count it seems like I will do more harm to Luna than good :(

    to kill the cocci you need to kill their food source which is thiamine. So you are depleating the body of thiamine when giving corid or sulmet albon etc. So I wouldnt continue if she doesnt need it

    I would give her a minimum of 2 days to flush her of the corid, just to be sure :wink:


    Did a search and 2 days is reccomended or corid.

    the idea of starting a treatment and continuing it for the duration isnt wrong - but my oppion is that is is more in the case for like antibiotics would you need to keep treating.

    its always good to have differnt view points. To each his own I say. when an oppion is asked we dont always have to agree. But disagreeing in a friendly, respectful manor is all that is expected.
