Definitely a 6 week wait after neutering and if the girls you are talking about are the ones who had ringworm you should wait until their post-treatment skin test at the vet comes back negative, which takes about 2 weeks. Post-op waits and ringworm quarantine are hard when you can see the piggies are sad but it won't be forever.
Hope your piggies all get well soon, it will be worth the wait to see them all happy together knowing thete's no infection or pregnancy risks!
No, it is another brand name for baytril (the active ingredient in it is called enroflaxacin).

I hope your boy makes a recovery soon.

Please do not put him with your girls even though you are supervising. Trying to separate a mating pair can cause damage and mating can happen quickly. It would be most careless to end up with your sow getting pregnant because you put them together too soon. Also if you are fighting a ringworm infection I would be keeping them quarantined as it really sounds like he doesn't need any further help problems to complicate things

I'm not an expert but I think zithromax is supposed to be the best antibiotic for an abscess
I was told its the strongest one of the antibiotics 👍. Not going against you atall lol. Just saying haha 😁. Infact simon prescribed it when in case my old boar had an abscess whilst waiting for his results back. But it was cancer
