Brief Answer:
Yes you can

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I understand your concerns but don't worry. You may give enterogermina for 3 or more days if required. Give zinsy for atleast 14 complete days to have early recovery and better immunity for similar episodes. Ensure regular feeds to avoid dehydration.

Hopefully it will be of help.
Take care
