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 Taste Tabs 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 Taste Tabs 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 Taste Tabs 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 Taste Tabs:

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 Taste Tabs:

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.

Customer Reviews
Baytril Taste Tabs is rated 4.1707 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from She's doing wonderful after this medication I bought this 2 weeks ago and my Tatis UTI is non existant. She is a happy cat again. I thank the vets who recommended this and 800 pet meds for helping me through this difficult process. They were very helpful and patient while I was erratic and stressed out. When you see your pets sick it's a difficult and stressful time ( at least for me). I hate seeing her sick

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cost of med Our dog has had probably 10 bladder infections in the last 4 years and for the last 2 infections our vet has prescribed Baytril. This med works but so have the other cheaper meds that she had been on and they are charging us $83.00 for 10, 136 mg Baytril scored tabs. That's a lot of money esp when the other ones worked. I really like our vet but this makes me wonder how much of a mark up I'm paying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Baytril Little Ben is back on Zuniquin now which I still have in supply from you. His Vet is switching back and forth right now since she doesn't want him on one antibiotic too long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Cat went blind also My 15 yr old cat was diagnosed w/an inner ear infection (tilting head and could not stand or walk) Our vet put her on oral Baytril for about 2 wks. We noticed her pupils were huge even when outside and she started walking into things. Later, I read that some older cats can be blinded from Baytril and that memos concerning these findings were sent to all the vets who use this medication. I blame the vet for givingBaytril to my cat which he knew was 15 yrs old. My cat died about a month later. I know that the Baytril blinded her, I don't know if it created complications resulting in her death or if it was her old age or if she just gave up after becoming blind. Please be cautious about this medication if your cat is very old or may not be healthy enough to withstand the side effects.

Hello, for how many days minimum  should  my  cat  be on the  22.7 mg a day? Thanks 

Asked by: Stacyb73
The duration of treatment for Baytril depends on what type of infection you are treating. Generally, treatment should continue for at least 2-3 days beyond cessation of clinical signs, to a maximum therapy duration of 30 days. Contact your vet to find out exactly how long they wanted your cat to take this medication.

what is the baytril dosage for an extremely small dog

I have a 13 yr old 3.8 lb chihuahua & was given Baytril 68 mg chew tab. I was told to give 1/4 of a tab 2 times a day.She has a very sensitive stomach.I would like to know the low to high range dose for her & the best way to give it to her for her stomach. Thank you.
Asked by: sis
The manufacturer's recommended dosage range for Baytril is 9mg to 34mg as a single dose once a day or divided into 2 doses 12 hours apart. Your pet is taking the 34mg dose divided into 2 doses. The medication may be given with food to help with her sensitive stomach.
