Hello, sorry for the late response! She has an Escherichia coli (E-Coli) infection. Aside from the smell, there really are no symptoms. Occasionally she gets a runny nose but other than that...not much.

We are most concerned with the Klebsiella. Everything says that it's not something you want to let get out of control. She has been on meds and seemingly doing well, but both the E-Coli and Klebsiella are still present.

I'm hesitant to give her C. Silver. I was thinking more along the lines of probiotics, enzymes, echinacea, etc. I know everyone has their opinions about Colloidal Silver but based on my reading I'm going to stay away from it. One specialist that we took her to here in town gave her a Chemotherapy drug by accident. She spent a week in the hospital and almost died - she had near fatal liver and kidney numbers. Point being is I don't want to stress her liver, or kidneys with anything.

Thanks again.
