Baytril Taste Tabs is a fluroquinolone antibiotic indicated for the management of disease in dogs and cats associated with bacteria susceptible to enrofloxacin.
Fluroquinolone antibiotics interfere with bacterial DNA metabolism killing the bacteria. Baytril is bactericidal against a wide range of gram positive and gram negative bacteria.
- Urinary tract infections: Baytril exerts rapid bactericidal action in the urinary tract. Provides effective management of acute or chronic infections of the genito-urinary tract and prostate.
- Respiratory tract infections: Baytril irreversibly inhibits a bacterial enzyme resulting in rapid bactericidal action. Achieves therapeutic concentrations in pulmonary and bronchial tissues.
- Dermal infections: Bayril concentrates in inflamed tissue providing high drug levels at the infection site.
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 inappetence, depression, and vomition.
Cats: Administer orally at 5 mg/kg (2.27 mg/lb) of body weight. The dose for dogs and cats may be administered either as a single daily dose or divided into two (2) equal daily doses administered at twelve (12) hour intervals. The dose should be continued for at least 2-3 days beyond cessation of clinical signs, to a maximum of 30 days.
