    What I have heard is you wait a number of days after they stop the Baytril and it has cleared her system.

    Baytril is an amazing drug. The official withdrawal time in cattle is 28 days, so that's probably what I would do.

    If I read this study correctly, egg withdrawal is 5 days after last dose, but I would probably wait at least a few more days.

    I just glanced at it, so maybe I didn't read it correctly. :D
