I have a Pekin and he weighs 7.40, what would the appropriate dosing be for him?
What Baytril do you have?
And please confirm that the weight of 7.4 is in pounds.
@angiegorham17 , the amount of Baytril that most vets seem to prescribe is 10 mg/kg twice a day, but injectable Baytril comes in two strengths, so how much you give depends on which one you have.
If you have the 100 mg/ml, and your duck weighs 7.4 pounds, the math is this:
7.4 / 2.2 x 10 / 100 = 0.34 ml twice a day
If you have the 22.7 mg/ml, and your duck weighs 7.4 pounds, the math is this:
7.4 / 2.2 x 10 / 22.7 = 1.48 ml twice a day
The 100 mg/ml bottle looks like this:
The 22.7 mg/ml bottle looks like this:
Please confirm which one you have.
I work at a vet hospital but my Drs do not specialize in ducks, I believe it would be the smaller animal baytril I'd have access to!
Actually, I have access to both!
You and the Doctors might like both the books here:
Think it would be more beneficial to go with the larger animal one so its a smaller amount I'd have to administer? And would I do this for approx 10 days like most antibiotics?
