- And got the T-shirt
There are two schools of thought on probiotics -- some swear by them, others say they're useless. I suffered through a six-week bout of diarrhea in which I lost 40 pounds and no treatment they tried worked. The gastroenterologist they finally sent me to told me to go a natural food store and get some priobiotics. The diarrhea stopped within 24 hours, and I had no more problems. So put me down as a real believer. I never give my guinea pigs antibiotics of any kind without probiotics.
Thanks for all the advice!
