:What is it for? Broad Spectrum, or a specific thing?


Flagyl is metronidazole, which has a narrow spectrum of activity against anaerobic bacteria--(bacteria that live without oxygen such as clostridium and are often found in the gut or puncture wounds.) It is also effective against certain one celled parasites such as amoebas, trichomonads and Giardia in humans, so would probably be useful for certain amphibian parasites as well. However, it would be useless against most common disease bacteria or those infecting superficial wounds. It is not broad spectrum.

Hope this helps. Patty
