    OK, the roo we operated on was doing better, now today he didn't seem as perky so I talked to a vet about the possibility of him being resistant to the Pen G. The roo still has infected looking hocks, which we have treated, cleaned etc..plus nine days of Pen G injections. The vet felt we had the dosage right on the Pen G, so suggested this antibiotic because he felt it would help with a staph infection. Has anyone used this for anything other than protazoa/worms?
