    Just had a thought... Does LA stand for long acting?

    Pretty sure it does, Kathy. Thus the every 3-5 day recommendation.

    This seems to be correct. I'm going to go back and edit my original post too, just in case someone comes along in the future and doesn't read far enough.

    I think I've got some Baytril in the cabinet. It's old so it might be expired but I don't think it would hurt to give it to her. But I will wait until the morning on that one. I don't mind throwing everything but the kitchen sink at this, but just not all at once.

    Baytril is what I would give her, and I'd also try draining her if I was 100% sure that her belly was that big from fluid.
