baytril

What is the dosage for baytril injectable? I misread a post and may have give my hen the wrong dose. I can find a dosage when I do a search on baytril.

I don't know as there can be multiple formulations for the drug. What percentage is it? Have you tried to look for the data sheet on the drug? From what I recall, this drug is prohibited for use in commercial flocks and has a one month withdrawal time in cattle.

What are you treating?

I'm no expert, there is always something to learn, and my birds are livestock, so... yes, I may be quite blunt. wink.png

Here is the site brochure for Baytril in poultry:

http://www.poultry.baytril.com/index.php/fuseaction/download/lrn_file/ChickenRespi.pdf


Here is a quote from this site:

One mL of Baytril 10% oral solution contains 100 mg of the active ingredient enrofloxacin. Chickens and turkeys are dosed at 10 mg enrofloxacin per kg bodyweight for 3 to 5 consecutive days. When Baytril 10% oral solution is reconstituted in drinking water of regular quality (pH 6.5 to 7.5), solutions with concentrations of enrofloxacin from 20 to 200 ppm (20 to 200 mg enrofloxacin/L water) are stable at temperatures up to 50° C, for at least 48 hours. Only with exceptionally high concentrations of Ca2+ and Mg2+ in the water precipitations of active may occur. Be also aware that direct exposure to sunlight (UV rays) will inactivate enrofloxacin in drinking water solutions.

The withdrawal time for food animals treated with baytril in Canada is essentially infinite as it is not legal to use in food production animals. Is this different in the US? How does a non-medical person obtain it? (can be abused as a hallucinogen)

My vet gave it to me. He was on vacation, now back. I'm not going to eat the hen and eggs are good one week after last dose. She's doing a little better after three doses. The whistling has stopped but she still gasps for breath after any exertion. Have two more doses to go. Thank you for all your help.
