I have a Pekin and he weighs 7.40, what would the appropriate dosing be for him?

@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!

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?
