I really don't know the answer to these concerns - it's very techical for sure. I'm not sure about introducing an antibiotic directly in to the vagina - that is such a different organ than the mammary gland that it seems as if it would respond differently.

Have you tried posting this on the Holistic Vet board? Dr. Tobin can't check it every day, but you will get a response within the next couple of days even if it is an "I don't know".

Good luck and thanks for the update!

>>1. Atropine-sulphate liquid (only liquid is available here), to be given orally 0.3ml a day, to increase thirst and reduce secretion. (He said he is aware that it is used to reduce spasms, and she doesn't have spasm, but it's used for thirst and secretion purposes too, he said.)
>>
>>2. He explained to me, that in cows mastitis is very common and often it is caused by highly resistent staph and doesn't respond to oral antibiotics. In such a case, an intra-mammary application is given by inserting a tiny tube into the cow's mammary glands. This has often shown better results than the oral antibiotics. He is suggesting to insert a tube into her vagina and apply antibiotics that way.
>>
>>Do you have any experience with these two methods? I heard that atropine-sulphate can have severe side effects, is that true? And would inserting an antibiotic solution directly into the vagina heighten the danger of a new bacterial infection being inserted as well?

Smile, it will make them wonder what you are up to!
