Tell these things to your vet if you haven't already. That's some serious stuff going on.

Give your vet a call. I wouldn't even think of going to a forum before a vet if my horse was showing these symptoms!
pick up the phone, dial the number, and ask for their advice.

What is metronidazole? And what is genticin?

Surely, the vet had more information and ideas than just that the WBC is high? If not, I would be calling another vet.
