Question
Hi Donna,
Update on Migi - Donna regarding the MILK OF MAG i didn't give any at all this was for the FRUIT ROLL i'm trying to see if his poop will return to normal without the MOM however his poop is dog like with lots of berries all clumped up but he is still eating like normal is this okay? Will it get back to normal? Also just got back from the FEED/FARM STORE to pick up more DURAMYCIN & i normally pick up the large size DURAMYCIN however she said its back ordered and they only had the 6.4 oz size so i had to pick that up. Also i asked if they had tetracycline powder & she said no she said they have TERRAMYCIN comparable to DURAMYCIN is that any good? Can i give that instead or is DURAMYCIN better. Thanks so much Donna.

Luv,
Me & Migi

Answer
Hi there - Sounds like he is getting back to normal without the MOM so I think it is a good idea just to wait especially if he is eating and drinking fine.  Re the terramycin powder, that is about the same as the duramycin powder, same as the tetracycline powder - so all work about the same - same dosing.  Hope this helps - Donna
