You need to allow 2-3 day for the antibiotics to build up and work fully. Please give the full course and DO NOT STOP AS SOON AS THE SYMPTOMS HAVE DISAPPEARED! Hopefully, you see the first signs of improvement by tomorrow evening.

What are the antibiotics for? They need longer to work but depending on what his illness is, he may also need a probiotic or painkiller. :)

its for URI he is on Marbocyl 0.3mils once a day got 2 syringes one with 0.9 mils in and 1 with 0.6mils in, I'm just worried as he is no better than he was before he had his first injection! he isn't drinking but is eating carrots, he is pooing but haven't noticed any wee yet :/
