My concern is 2 things. 1) Ive only given her 1/2 a pill so far. Is the damage already done? And 2) should I just not give her anymore? He gave her this bc he thinks she has a possible infection in her GI track. She hasn't been eating and when she poops its watery. Any advice? Thank you!
Welcome to BYC! My advice is to listen to your vet. FWIW, I use Baytril and I eat the eggs. If you're concerned, call the vet and talk to him about the reason it's banned for use in poultry.
