My poor little Sophie is sick. Since yesterday morning, she's been throwing up and refusing to eat. This morning, she tried drinking some water, but threw that up too. So I dropped her off at the vet's office this morning on my way to work. The vet called me later to say that Sophie has an overgrowth of spirochete bacteria in her stomach. He made it sound like it's not that big of a deal and that with antibiotics, specifically, metronidazole, she'll be fine in no time. But after our phone conversation, I decided to do some research on the internet. Almost all searces for info on spirochetes led to articles on Lyme disease and tick bites. Does anyone have any info on this type of bacteria?
