    Just wondering if I can get some info from the experts! I need the dosage amounts for baytril in water. I realize it's not the best delivery method...but I am seriously about to lose my mind if I don't get rid of this crap they keep passing back and forth. The baytril knocks it out like a charm and is the only thing that works so well...but I can't orally treat them all. Just isn't happening. So, my best option is to put it in their water and that way everyone gets treated. The baytril is 100mg/ml. Also, how long should I medicate using this method?
    Thanks!!

    There are 100 litres in 26 gallons. Baytril 10% would be 6cc/ml to 1.50 gallons of water at the high end dosage of the 100 ml solution. The 10% Enfloxil I have is .25 cc for injection for 6 lb hen. I've given it subcutaneously in the breast with a 25 gauge needle syringe.

    Not an expert, but the information I have on Baytril says *not* to use it in water as it is not well tolerated and the sick birds won't drink it.

    These are the amounts my vets have told me to inject or give orally:
    • 10mg/kg twice a day for 5 days (.1ml per 2.2 pounds)
    • 15mg/kg once a day for 5 days (.15ml per 2.2 pounds)
    • 20mg/kg once a day for 5 days (.2ml per 2.2 pounds)
