What is the most important information I should know about Baytril: Baytril is a prescription medication FDA-approved for veterinary use in dogs and cats. Baytril is available as 22.7mg, 68mg and 136mg scored chewable tablets for dogs and cats. The usual dose of Baytril for dogs is 2.27-9.07mg/pound every 24 hours. The usual dose of Baytril for cats is 2.27mg/pound every 24 hours. The dog and cat doses may be divided into two doses 12 hours apart. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Do not give Baytril to any pet other than the pet for whom it was prescribed. Baytril is not for use in animals allergic to it or other fluroquinolone antibiotic drugs. It is advised that Baytril should not be used in younger dogs during their rapid growth phase, approximately 2 to 8 months in small to medium breeds, 2 to 12 months in large dogs, and 2 to 18 months in giant breeds.

What is Baytril: Baytril is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic used for the treatment of bacterial infections of the urinary tract, skin, prostate, GI tract, liver, and lungs due to susceptible organisms. This medication may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Baytril to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has had seizures, or is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be given: Give Baytril Tablets exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Give all of the medication your veterinarian has prescribed. Symptoms may start to improve before the infection is completely treated. Allow plenty of water for your pet to drink. Do not exceed the maximum dose of 2.27mg/pound per day in cats because of an increased risk of altered vision or blindness. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store Baytril at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets. 

What happens if I miss giving a dose: Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea.

What should I avoid while giving Baytril to my pet: Do not use Baytril in animals allergic to it or other fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Do not give Baytril within 2 hours of giving an antacid or sucralfate, vitamin/mineral products, or dairy products.  

What are the possible side effects of Baytril: 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.

What other drugs will affect Baytril: Before giving Baytril, tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given warfarin, theophylline, probenecid, or phenytoin. When given with cyclosporine, Baytril can increase the risk of kidney damage from the cyclosporine. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Baytril. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over-the-counter medications.

Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information about Baytril written for health professionals that you may read.

Baytril One of the stronger group of antibiotics available against some of the most nasty bacterial infections seen in veterinary practice, this tried and tested prescription antibiotic by Bayer is still the gold standard in its class, in my experience and opinion. Of the quinolone antibiotic class, I find it the most reliable and widely used in my profession. Many studies have shown it to reach high therapeutic concentrations in difficult areas such as the prostate gland, bladder, kidneys, uterus, skin, ears and lungs. Many times various bacteria such as E coli, pseudomonas, Mycoplasma, and bordatella are resistant to many other prescribed antibiotics, where Baytril has truly shined in its perfomance. . In particular, pseudomonas has been one of the most frustrating bacteria to deal with in chronic skin and ear infections. I dont know where I would be if such an antibiotic like baytril were not available, as I have found the competitor quinolone antibiotics both that have come along in the human field like ciprofloxicin and others like orbax in the veterinary field not as reliable in my experience and opinion. Of course I always guide the ideal antibiotic therapy for an infectious condition based on results of cultures. However when one is dealing with an acute or emergency situation like an acute infection of the prostate gland, uterus(called pyometra) or painfully sensitive abcessed ear, I often dont have time to wait for culture reports to come back and that is when I will reach for baytril in particular as a first line antibiotic of choice. We also can get by using this antibiotic once daily at a higher dose at once, rather than clients needing to give an antibiotic twice or three times daily. I also find that baytril tends to have less digestive side effects than other prescribed antibiotics, and its coating make it very easy to adminster for most animal guardians. . The only drawbacks I have seen with its use orally in animals, is a rare unexplained blindness that can occur in a very small proportion of treated cats, as well as the expense sometimes needed to treat large dogs or deep infections or abcesses. The antibiotic is also contraindicated to use in especially large breed rapidly growing dogs the first several months of life. I also find that some veterinarians will reach for this expensive and powerful antibiotic first for simple infections, when other more economic antibiotics would be equally as effective. This practice also can lead to future bacterial resistance, which is something that both MD/s and DVMs need to be more aware of with potential for future drug resistant bacteria if powerful antibiotics like baytril are overused or misprescribed. However given these minor limitations, I give this prescription product an overall rating and efficacy a 5, with an ease of use/taste a 5. 05/04/2009
Very Helpful My Pomeranian has had liver disease for over one year. Of the five different antibiotics she has been on, Baytril is the only one that doesn't make her vomit or decrease her appetite, and her liver enzyme counts are slowly decreasing back toward the normal range. 01/07/2014
Works most of the time My second Bichon Frise has chronic urinary infections as did the first due to struvite crystals common to the breed. My vet always prescribes Baytril for the infections which are almost all the time. It works while their is an infection, but 2 days later she has more infection, so more Baytril.. I am afraid she will build an immunity to this product. I also must say my vet is inline with the cost here.(almost the same). If anyone knows other than diet change, a better solution I would like to hear about it. Wish Pet Meds had more holistic solutions & products! 12/28/2013
No adverse effects at all My dog had a UTI-4 Baytril a day for 7 days and she is now negative for the E coli bacteria--and she is a 100 lb. female-----I am very satisfied with the results 01/26/2013
Vomit This product has made my dog vomit I will stop Giving her this medication as she does not have a cough anymore. 01/19/2013

Vet prescribed Baytril liquid 1.4mL every 24 hrs for my cat.
How much do I give him in pill form?

Answers

Answer: 
The concentration of Baytril Otic liquid is 5mg per mL. The dose of 1.4mL is equivalent to 7mg. The smallest dose in the tablet formulation that we carry is 22.7mg and so it could be difficult to accurately dose your pet according to the prescribed amount that your veterinarian recommends. The Baytril otic is usually used in the ears to treat outer ear infections. Depending on what type of infection that you are treating, tablets may not be an appropriate route of administration (ex. ear infection). Speak to your veterinarian about which formulation is most appropriate for your cats infection.

My cat is taking 100 mg Amoxicillin twice a day. He is vomiting and has lost his appetite. The vet wants to change to Baytril (22.7 twice a day for 5 days). Is Baytril less harsh on the stomach? Is it less likely to cause the above symptoms?

Answer: 
there is a chance of vomiting with any antibiotic including Baytril. try giving it with some food to
avoid stomach irritation. Make sure the pet has plenty of fresh water aound also. If your pet does
get an upset stomach, ask your vet if you can use it with PEPCID. Some pet owners have had
success using the pepcid .....1/2 hour prior to medication on an EMPTY stomach. The resulting
reduction in acidity will make vomiting and diarrhea less likely. Good Luck !

Answer: 
Only getting your animal to drink more water will get it to urinate more. Same problem I have with my Bichon. I think my dog has figured it out that if she hurts whens she voids, she stops drinking as much as she should. I suggest a bit of chicken bouillon, cooled of course. It's salty & will make them drink more.

Answer: 
Per manufacturer label, increased urination is not a common side effect. However if your pet is experiencing increased urination or any other unusual side effects, please consult your veterinarian.
