What is Baytril?

Baytril is the trade name used for the antibiotic, enrofloxacin. Enrofloxacin belongs to a class of broad-spectrum synthetic chemicals called fluoroquinolones. These chemicals inhibit the replication of bacterial DNA. Baytril effectively treats bacterial infections found in the intestinal tract, urinary tract, liver, lungs, prostate, and skin.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Treats bacterial infections
  • Chewable tablets are flavored so your pet will enjoy eating them

How it works?

Baytril is an antibiotic in the fluoroquinolone family. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics work by blocking the bacteria's ability to make DNA. This results in death of susceptible bacteria.

Storage:

Store at room temperature.

Most dogs will consume Baytril® Taste Tabs® Tablets willingly when offered by hand. Alternatively the tablet(s) may be offered in food or hand-administered (pilled) as with other oral tablet medications. In cats, Baytril® Taste Tabs® Tablets should be pilled. After administration, watch the animal closely to be certain the entire dose has been consumed. Dogs: Administer orally at a rate to provide 5-20 mg/kg (2.27 to 9.07 mg/lb) of body weight. Selection of a dose within the range should be based on clinical experience, the severity of disease, and susceptibility of the pathogen. Animals which receive doses in the upper-end of the dose range should be carefully monitored for clinical signs that may include inappetance, depression, and vomition.
All tablet sizes are double scored for accurate dosing.

Cautions

Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Do not use this medication in dogs 2 to 8 months old in small to medium breed dogs, 2 to 12 months old in large breed dogs, or 2 to 18 months old in giant breed dogs.

If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your pet while giving Baytril, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Stop giving the medication and seek emergency veterinary medical attention if your pet experiences an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; or hives). Other less serious side effects may also occur. Continue to give the medication and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, or drowsiness. Side effects other than those listed may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.
