I need help calculating dose. The Baytril calculator doesn't say what strength suspension it's using, plus it's in Mg not Ml. I have 10% oral suspension for a piggie who is .62 kg. The calculation chart is in Mg of medication, and since it's oral suspension, I need it in Ml, and I just want to be sure! When I put in her weight, it said 3.84 mg. Should I give her 3.84 Ml/cc's?
PLEASE NO FLAMES, I have several older rescue piggies--piggies that were going to euthanized. I want to do the best I can for them, with the resources I have. This piggie was rescued over 2 years ago, right before she was going to be euthanized.
Here are the details on the piggie:
In the past, I decided that because I have some geriatric (older) piggies, I wanted to keep Baytril on hand, in case I detect any URI or pneumonia at any point--they seem to go downhill so fast once it hits, and I wanted to have it available if i needed it. My oldest girl (6+ years old) started wheezing and coughing this morning, and she's been losing weight lately, too. (She's always been a small piggie, but now she is really tiny.) I want to dose her correctly with some Baytril, but I haven't used this particular one before. Based on a recommendation I found on these boards (I can't remember who) I purchased a bottle of oral suspension from an online bird supply, that is labeled as follows: Enrofloxyn 10%. She currently weighs .62kg (yes, she's small.)
