Baytril (enrofloxacin) you have to buy online or from a vet. Google Baytril for birds or just Enfloxil, either should come up with lots of choices. I like the 10% injectable... it can be given orally or by injection.

I found baytril on dr fosters and smith website. There is a 22.7mg, 68mg, or 136mg, taste tab chew tablet. What strength and do you have a preference where to buy? I haven't come across the injection yet but I'm still looking.

Tablets are too difficult to use correctly, liquid is much easier:

Baytril (Enrofloxacin)

Banned for use in poultry, so read this before using:

Consult a veterinarian for dosing instructions

 


 

Generic 10% (100mg/ml) prices start at $24.47: 

1000

I don't believe that the bottles above have any manufacturing  info on them and they certainly are not meant to be used for injections. IMNSHO, injectable anything should come from a sterile, sealed, container.

 

Oral Baytril 10% (100mg/ml) - $25.49

Generic 10% injectable (100mg/ml) - Prices usually start at around $20

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Note that some websites say to give it in the water, but I would not recommend this, I *always* give it orally or by injection, never in water.

Just want to make sure that I understand what you're saying. The item in the first photo is not injectable but how do you dose it? And the bottom photo is that something that is injectable? And I'm guessing I buy the needles at the same place that I buy the medication from correct? Where do I inject at? What type of Corid do you recommend the powder or the liquid.

Sorry for all the questions but this is new to me and I want to be sure I'm doing this right.

Sorry for the delay... hard to reply from that stupid ipad! Anyway, The first two can be given orally using a 1 ml syringe without needle. The third can be given orally or by injection into the muscle or under the skin. This link explains how to give medication:

http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1048620/how-to-provide-emergency-and-supportive-care-updated-1-3-2016

 

Most feed stores do not sell 1 ml syringes, so you would have to order those. This place sells boxes of 100:

For a needle, you'll want 22 gauge, which you should be able to get at a feed store.

 

Never be for for asking questions, that's one of the reasons we're here! :D

Great! The dose I see prescribed most often is 10 mg/kg twice a day for no more than 5 days. That's about 0.045 ml per pound twice a day.
