    Default what AB for lactating mom??

    thank you if you know or can help me research.. I am having brain fade.
    I need to know what I can use for a lactating/nursing mom... and a pain aid as well..
    metacam? prednisone? tramadol? ibuprofen?

    ABs,
    amoxy, keflex, metronidazole, cipro, doxy, SMZ-TMP.
    Banana is in my bathroom.
    babies look good, a boy and a girl... seem sleepy.. fat, one eye out of four is open...4.5 weeks old.
    Didn't see her out back for a couple days, started looking, found her in her nestbox not looking good...yes alert, but an obvious 'front'.
    Got her in a cage, but not before she shot out of box with obvious signs of injury...she allowed me to handle her.. very willingly...
    very concerned... will let her hunker in for a couple hours and will start investigating and triage.. had babies seperated, but thought she may feel better with them..
    if she declines or snubs them, I will start FV and seperate...
    ... our big matriarch is down
    thanks in advance...

    JIT I did some quick reading.
    Pain killers...looks like ibuprofen is okay
    Abs...not "our" first choice, but Amoxicillin appears to be okay as does Penicillin.

    Cipro is recommended against due to amounts found in breastmilk.

    Keflex appears to be okay too....actually better than the 'cillins, as it has not been traced to breastmilk even in small amounts.

    What MM said! I just found the same thing. It was for humans, but looks like if Amoxi will work not much ends up in breastmilk.

    Jackie - I just found this about Tramadol.

    Summary of Use during Lactation

    The excretion of tramadol into milk is low and even lower amounts of the active metabolite, O-desmethyltramadol, are excreted. With usual maternal dosage, the amount excreted into breastmilk is much less than the dose given to newborn infants for analgesia. A study in breastfed newborn infants found no adverse effects attributable to tramadol. Tramadol is unlikely to adversely affect nursing infant and is acceptable to use during breastfeeding. However, monitor infants for increased sleepiness (more than usual), difficulty breastfeeding, breathing difficulties or limpness, and contact a physician immediately if any of these occur.

    Looks like Metro is a big No No.

    Metronidazole Breastfeeding Warnings

    Metronidazole is secreted in breast milk in concentrations similar to those found in plasma. Because of the potential for tumorigenicity, shown for metronidazole in mouse and rat studies, decide whether to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.


    Doxy appears to be ONLY when the benefits to the mother outweigh the risks to the babies.
