I have to ask... How many people actually have harm potions as opposed to healing potions? I mean, what's the point? It seems to me like it would be carrying around bottles of rat poison in bottles of pepto-bismal.

Or did Fowl not even bother with a proper explanation of how the zombie got all his HP back?

It depends on how likely you are to be doing stuff with undead. If you, taking a random example, have decided to create a gargantuan dragon juju zombie, you are much more likely to keep a stash of something like harm type potions somewhere. (This could also be the location of a temple of evil clerics, if you can greater teleport it doesn't really matter where you go.)
The real question is: if a dragon of that size drinks a potion, how does it even affect them?

Potions are a form of alternative medicine, so if a dragon drinks one it becomes many times more diluted and as a result, many times stronger. As it turns out, the strength increase always maps out to be just enough to compensate for the fact that you have less potion per liter of dragon.

Sneaky.

Don't alternative medicines usually involve, say, crystals and drinking fermented cabbage and salt?
