But my parents are from the old school of rodent-keeping. They usually pack the antibiotic right into some pina colada yogurt. They give pineapple for G.I. Stasis and Pumpkin for diarrhea. *sigh*
The only reason their bunny is getting benebac this time is because I was the one who took her to the vet. They fought me on it, though.
Still, although they do lose some to G.I. problems, many of their rabbits have lived to a ripe old age.
Is there something wrong with this? Should I give it to him orally instead?
I could really use the advice, this is my first sick pig in years of being a slave and I'm a little worried.
Sorry, I need step by step directions. I'm actually not the one who is treating him. I am on another island and my parents are caring for him for me. Being that I've never had a sick pig before I really don't know if I take out the needle or put the Baytril in another syringe.
Thanks for the help.
Here's a needless syringe. One would draw the plunger up so there is room for the dose to be placed inside the needless syringe.
Or if you have a very cooperative pig, the dose might be squirted on some food and fed that way.
Since she's been on the batryil I've definitely noticed some behavioral changes. She's just not acting like herself. She's much more jumpy and hyper and when going outside to potty she'll just stop and stare off into space. Because of this her usual 5 minute walks to finish her toilet needs has extended to 20 minutes or more now. She still have 5 more days of antibiotics to go. Hopefully she'll go back to her normal self when the drugs leave her system and I hope this is her last UTI!
If you think Baytril is bad, I hope you never have to put her on Prednisone. that's justa nightmare of a drug!!!
Clavamox is actually Augmentin or amoxicillin with potassium added if memory serves me correctly, which I was put on in the past for a UTI of my own. Which I also found impossible to keep down. After two days of vomiting it right back up, my doctor then switched me to something starting with a B. Is Bactrim called Bactrim in human medicine as well? All I remember is that I only had to take one pill every 24 hours for about 4 days and the UTI symptoms cleared up about 12 hours after the first pill.
