Hi Lisa,

I talked to my boss and she feels that it's ok to keep a cat on Flagyl longterm as long as the cat is closely monitored. The main concern is the possibility of neurological problems developing, although the drug can also affect the kidneys and liver.

Since Sola has been doing so well on Flagyl it might be the best drug to treat his IBD. I know you will watch him closely and that you also have labwork done on a regular basis. Perhaps over time, the dose can be lowered, or the medication can even be discontinued. Or possibly changed to something else.

Take Care,
PHKitkat
