    Specialist Colitis and kidney failure after fly strike

    Hi, I posted before about needing a new friend for our younger boar, Buzz, and that George had rejected Buzz after an operation for flystrike. So, almost as soon as George finished his baytril he started to eat less and then got very watery diarrhoea. We booked him in for an emergency...

    Lot's of eye discharge on one eye - On baytril

    Hi everyone, My guinea pig Remy had to go to the vet last week because he had a piece of apple wedged in his mouth. The vet was able to remove it no problem but did put him on Baytril for two weeks seeing as he was worried the friction caused by the apple could lead to an infection. Anyways...

    Antibiotic question

    So little Steve had X-rays done Sunday and no sludge or stones were found on the images. The vet said likely a case of cystitis so prescribed a course of baytril (0.28mls) for two weeks and loxicom (0.28mls). I was also given probiotics to stop the poos going runny. I've been giving this since...

    Should I split my piggie’s Metacam?

    Hello! On Friday afternoon I noticed one of our boars (Mr Pig) was hunching over and being quite vocal, so naturally I sprung to action and went over to investigate and found little pink spots on the fleece. A quick bit of research seemed to indicate bladder issues such as an infection or...

    How fast do URI's progress?

    My Piggie has been on Baytril for seven days, and Doxycycline for one. We stopped for three days because of a bad gas episode, which she's almost completely healed from now. My other piggie has finished ten days of Baytril already. The Piggie that just recovered from gases is sneezing lots, but...

    Doxycycline

    My guinea pigs are being treated for a possible URI, and we got doxycycline today to give with the Baytril for ten days. 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...

    Can this URI return?

    My guinea pigs recently got off of Baytril for a URI, four days ago. Those four days ago, we got a recheck at the vet and they said everything sounded perfect. However, it's today that i still noticed some sneezing. I honestly can't tell if it's more than usual but I'm still worried that it...

    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.
