Hi, my 2-year-old guinea pig has a upper respiratory infection. She was prescribed Orbax and I failed to remember how much they told me to give her because they usually give me instructions on the bottle but they did not this time. I've been calling my vet and they are closed. What dosage do I give her? I know for two weeks and morning and night. Just don't remember how much. Help!

Scroll down and you will see a chart, it would be wise to just give the lowest dose untill. You can get in touched with your vet


15mg/kg is the dose in this chart for rabits! Personaly l wouldn't use that much! Safest to just give 5 m

I couldn't find this drug on the chart Gizzy. Its orbifloxacin l think. I would phone the vet there should be someone on call who can advise you over the phone. They really should have labelled the bottle for you with the dosage
