General info on TYLAN powder: 
http://www.ehow.com/facts_5585296_tylan-powder.html - available in large 
containers, more suitable for a vet.  My vet always gives me small amounts, 
because you don't need a lot of it. Meant originally for large farm animals, it 
has off-label uses.
Tylan is sometimes prescribed for off-label uses such as a treatment for 
gastrointestinal problems in small animals, such as cats and dogs, and as a 
growth-promoting food additive.

Tried liquid Metronidazole - RX from vet--- didn't help. Were 4 days into .5 
packet of forti-flora and no difference. Maybe try the full packet?

Try some acidophilus in the food (probiotics), and it will help. If the cat 
likes dairy, try some plain yogurt (good brand that contains real acidophilus), 
or have your vet give you some Metronidazole - 1/4 pill 2x day.

Thanks for the info. Now he is only on Clavamox (.3ml 2x a day) and sneezing is 
way better when he takes it. Nothing helping diarrhea tho. :( his disposition 
is great: eats a ton and is super playful. He's growing as well. I have him 
with a foster til his 13 week ELISA test again. I want IFA again too.. 
Considering all the false +s I hear of. Still very young to know for sure 
tho... Either way, he needs a new home come october. :(

When Homey (6 years) had a URL, Dr. R gave hr an antibiotic sot that lasts for 
2 weeks.  She has had 2 bouts and each tmeit works.  Better than trying to give 
her a pill or liqud each day.
