Baytril is a synthetic, broad spectrum antibiotic used in dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, and other animals and is available in different formulas — for dogs and cats, it is normally supplied as flavoured tablets. It can also be used in a wide variety of other animals, and for these Baytril Oral Solution is normally best. This treatment has been used very widely in rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice, hamsters, as well as many species of bird and reptile. The solution can be added to drinking water or placed directly in the mouth. If it is placed in drinking water, it should not be in a metal dispenser if possible, as this may denature it chemically and reduce its effectiveness. Baytril is also available as an injection or in a doser for use in piglets.
Baytril treats a wide variety of bacterial infections of the alimentary, respiratory, and urogenital tracts and skin. Where possible, the veterinary surgeon should perform sensitivity testing of the bacteria involved before deciding if Baytril is appropriate.
It should not be used in young growing animals as it can have an adverse effect on the cartilage in joints and overdosing cats can cause eye damage, so accurate dosing is important. The usual dose rate is 5mg/kg bodyweight
