My bearded dragon has been prescribed metronidazole to take every 48 hours for 10 days. I read a couple of places that it's good to give probiotics along with this med... would that be necessary with this dosage, and if so, how exactly do I give the probiotic?

What is the dragon being prescribed metronidazole for? Yes, a probiotic would be a good idea in that case. I use Bene Bac bird and reptile gel and I give a couple pea - sized amounts each day while on meds and a few days after. It should be given before the meds and before they eat. So essentially, it should be the first thing given in the morning.
