    Hi, I'm Rosie and I'm new to the forum [​IMG]
    I have two hens, one of which (Barbara) hasn't been herself for the past few days. We took her to the vet who said she seemed to have an infection, and prescribed antibiotics.
    There's two different medicines, baytril and loxicom. The loxicom came with two syringes, and the vet also gave us a couple of syringes. However, the syringes say different things and I don't know which one to go off[​IMG][​IMG]

    The first two in the photo came with the medicine, and the last one is the one the vet gave us. This is each of them set to 0.6ml. I don't want to give her the wrong amount.
    Thanks
    Rosie

    [​IMG] Hello Rosie, so glad you have joined us.

    Since the Vet prescribed the treatment and gave you the syringes - it would seem best to contact him/her to verify the dosage for each medication and specifics on how to use which syringe to draw up the correct dosage?

    Nice to meet you Rosie. I can understand your confusion - I am just as confused looking at the syringes. What's with that?

    Thank you everyone :) I found my mum's little kitchen measuring cups and found that the one the vet had given us separate was the right amount, and then gave the vet a call just to check.
