    Doxycycline

First of all, to anyone who's every gotten doxycycline, is it usually so expensive? Mines was 108 US dollars. Secondly, they are each getting .5 mL of Baytril twice daily, and...

    Probiotic before dose?

    Hi! Our guinea pigs are on two antibiotics, and due to our schedule, we are only able to give a probiotic two hours after the second dose of antibiotics. So i was wondering if I could give benebac two hours before the antibiotic? Would it have the same effect or would it be pointless. Thanks!

    Cisapride and Baytril?

    Hi! I wasn't just wondering if it is safe to give cisapride and Baytril at the same time? My piggies are on Baytril for possible URI (we just started yesterday) and one Piggie is not only kind of gassy, but her poops are a bit smaller than usual. I have been giving her simethicone (I know it's...

    One of my guinea pigs rexy has been squeaking while peeing for 2/3 weeksish, on and off before I finally convinced my mum that something was wrong, and she went to the vets last Sunday at pets@home.

    Possible Bladder Stones/infection?

    Last month, my gorgeous 3yr old piggie Robbie passed a huge plug of some kind out of his urethra and had to get it removed by the emergency vet. His normal vet then prescribed him a week's worth of Baytril and said we'd keep an eye on him. He seemed to be doing okay, eating fine and everything...
