|Pigeon-Talk Pigeon Crisis - Emergency! Sick or Injured Pigeon Discussions PDA View Full Version : What is the correct dosage for Baytril? pdpbison 15th December 2005, 12:31 AM I was just fanning through various threads...looking for reiterations of the correct dosage for Baytril. |
I know it has been covered, but I am not finding the definitive mention, and the various mentions I seem to be finding, are starting to seem cunfuseing to me.
I find one mention of 15 mg of pure medicine per Kilo...which, say, for a 330 gram Pigeon, would be about 5 milligrams.
Does this sound right then?
Now, the Baytril I have says "10 %" on the label...so...would I use "5 times 10, or 50 Milligrammes? In order to get the 5 mG of the 'pure medicine'?
I am confused now...!
...do I take the "mG" to equate to 'mL', in which my syringes are callibrated?
And, is a Millilitre the same as a Cubic Centimetre then?
I have a bird with a wrapped for a day now Wing, setting what had been a commutated fracture of the ulna...and I want to adminster Baytril, but now I do not feel confident I know the right dosage to make up.
Lastly, does this medicine work 'best' when given straight into the throat or Crop? And if so, should it be on an empty Stomach? Or does that matter?
