Need help with proper dose of baytril
I had to order baytril on line as I do not have an avian vet in my area or one who sees birds. I've been around birds long enough to know My English Budgie has a Respiratory infection, Also I know Baytril is what is always prescribed.
here is what the bottle says..
Baytril 10% -Baytril 10% has a concentration of 100Mg per 1 ML
it states to give 2ML per quart of drinking water for 10 days
For starters my birds' water dish is only holds 6oz of water not a quart
but I do not like giving meds in water as its not a guarantee they're getting it at all since they do not drink much water
What I need to know is how many ML(that is what the syringe goes by) to give of this 10% Baytril by Beak(mouth/orally)instead of in the water- and Would I need to dilute it more than it already is, or can I just extract the proper dose out of the bottle and put it in his beak.
if this isn't possible then I would need to know how many ml to give in a 6oz water dish,because it states to make fresh daily so I'm not able to mix it up in a quart jug and just water him from that.
thank you for your help - This wouldn't be listed as an Emergency as I'll continue to give in his water until i find the answer :)
