It is worth knowing that the active ingredient of Baytril is enrofloxacin. It is under this name that the international community knows him. 1 ml of a 5% solution contains up to 50 mg of a pure antibiotic, and a 10% solution contains 100 mg. Once in the bloodstream, the chemical compound quickly penetrates the tissues of organs, and then into the cells of bacteria. At this stage, enrofloxacin "interferes" with the work of DNA, disrupting its replication. This interrupts the growth and reproduction of viruses, bacteria and microbes.

In 20-30 minutes after the injection, the concentration of the drug in the blood reaches its maximum level. It retains its therapeutic ability for 24 hours.

Composition and properties

The composition contains enrofloxacin. The substance penetrates deeply into the organism of bacteria, destroying their DNA. This prevents bacteria from multiplying. Penetration into the blood of the animal is quite fast. Baytril is not excreted from the body for 7 hours. After 7 hours, the drug is excreted naturally.

Baytril is used to combat bacteria and microorganisms:

  • hemophilus
  • staphylococcus
  • mycoplasma
  • Proteus
  • salmonella
  • clostridia and many others.

  • If there is Salmonella in the body, the drug is used to treat poultry. Before reaching three weeks of age, turkeys should be given 0.5 grams, diluted in 1 liter of water.
  • Chickens up to five weeks of age are given 0.5 grams, diluted in 1 liter of water.
  • Chickens and turkeys that have reached three weeks of age are given 0.10 ml, diluted in 1 liter of water. The solution for birds must be changed periodically.

VERY IMPORTANT! For hens - treatment with Baytril is contraindicated for laying hens.

Baytil is also used in the treatment of domestic pigeons. For them, the daily rate is calculated by the weight of the bird. One pigeon weighs about 300 grams. The dose will be 5 mg.

Rabbits heal very quickly. Therefore, the course of treatment is short. Just a week. The rabbits are soldered off twice a day. The calculation of the medication is carried out at the rate of 1 ml per 10 kilograms of rabbit weight.

Instructions for use for young animals

For the treatment of rabbits, less medicine is used. If the use of the drug is prescribed inside, then buy a 10% solution of enrofloxacin. For those who are not yet 2.5 months old, 5 mg / kg per day is enough. It is better to give large rabbits 6-7 mg per kilogram of animal weight. From 3 to 5 months, the dosage is 8 mg / kg.

It is not recommended to inject the drug subcutaneously, since at this age rabbits are painfully tolerant of such procedures. In addition, the dosage is too high for the pet's small body.

Practically in all instructions for veterinary use, it is forbidden to use animals with developed cicatricial digestion, small calves do not count. Fluoroquinolones should not be used in hens, as the antibiotic accumulates in the eggs. I suppose that herbivorous rabbits also have a lot of bacteria and protozoa in the cecum, an analogue of the rumen of a cow. Maybe that's why there are no recommendations of any reputable developer for Bytril in relation to rabbits. Pay attention to the peculiarity of rabbit digestion - cecorophia, which is similar to cicatricial digestion of ruminants.

Do not use the drug in the following cases

The drug Baytril is characterized by standard contraindications for strong broad-spectrum antibiotics. So the use of the drug is contraindicated:

  1. It is better not to give the drug to females during gestation or lactation.
  2. Babies who have not reached the age of 1 month, as they have weak immunity.
  3. If animals have hypersensitivity to any component. This usually has to be determined empirically, since it is economically ineffective to test for each individual crawl. To eliminate serious side effects due to hypersensitivity, you should pay attention to the condition of the animal after the dose and, if it gets worse, then exclude the drug. Another option is to initially administer a small dose of medication and observe the crawl response. This can prevent the cause of death of some individuals.
  4. The emergence of pathological abnormalities in the nervous system, this manifests itself in the form of seizures or deviations in the movement of the animal.
  5. Violation in the organs of excretion and processing of substances, especially renal and hepatic insufficiency.
  6. When the cartilage tissue is subject to morphological changes.
  7. With extreme caution, Baytril should be combined with non-steroidal substances, for example Theophylline, Levomycetin, etc. Usually the dosage is slightly reduced and close monitoring of the state of the rabbit's body is carried out.

The use of the drug for the listed problems or conditions is completely excluded or the dose is reduced. In the absence of an alternative, Baytril can be used with these manifestations, but it is better to do this under the supervision of a veterinarian.

How much does the medicine cost, where can I get it?

This drug is sold at veterinary pharmacies. The price of Baytril depends on the volume of the package and the percentage of the active ingredient. The cost of a 100 ml bottle with 2.5% concentration of the active ingredient varies between 260-380 rubles. The same package of 5% Baytril can cost 380-430 rubles.
