Sorry if you have posted before but has he got a stomach problem then is that why he is on antibiotics ?
He is not on antibiotics at the moment. He refused to eat yesterday and was very quiet and today I have withheld food as he has dire rear running out of him like brown water.
Just a bit concerned if I take him to the vet he doesn't have an antibiotic that is dangerous for him.

Took him to the vets and he also had a temperature so the vet gave him a long lasting antibiotic injection, this was on a Friday, starved him again for the next 24 hours, and by the Saturday teatime he was getting back to normal. If it has gone on for a few days with no improvement, I'd take him to the vets.
We now also keep a stock of Pro-Kolin in just in case he is a bit loose and we give him a dose and he is usually ok.
Thanks I may ring the vet in a moment and try and get him an appointment as he is not drinking either.

You would be surprised Dawn how many vets don't know about greys reactions to different things. We do have a grehound specialist at a practice near me but I would rather stay with my own vet, who may be aware and is very good usually with everything and does listen if you point things out to him.
I would rather just be aware before I go, just in case.
