The product: Baytril 10% (See end of page)
The dosage: 5 - 10 mg/kg every 12 hours
The suspension: 100 mg/ml
Note: A few things... This is an injectable however it can be administered orally.
If giving by injection, you
must dilute this product!
Be sure to dilute the amount below with
an equal amount (or more) of sterile saline for injection. It will burn and actually melts fat (it is a strong base).
If giving orally, you must dilute this
product! It tastes horrible and actually melts rat tongues (it is a strong base). Be sure to add, to the
amount below, something excrutiatingly sweet to mask the very bitter Baytril.
Also, 0.01 cc is very small. If you need help reading a
