Baytril is the brand name for enrofloxacin, an anti-infective antibiotic synthesised by Bayer Health Care Corp. research pharmacologists. Baytril is used for treating bacterial infections in animals. Some of the bacterial groups Baytril is used against include salmonella, E.coli, staphylococcus, bordetella and mycoplasma. Veterinarians use pet meds containing Baytril for the treatment of livestock and domestic pets. Liquid Baytril is given to cats and birds orally for infections and recovery from injuries. Baytril for dogs, cats and birds is available by prescription, so many countries do not allow open sale of Baytril through pet supply retailers.
Consult your veterinarian about animal conditions before attempting to treat them yourself. Many vets do use Baytril for dogs, cats and birds. Baytril may not be the best chemotherapeutic agent for the suspected infection or preventive care you hope to administer.
Obtain a prescription. Ask your veterinarian for a liquid form if Baytril is prescribed. The vet's office or pet supply centre the office is in may have the medicine available in liquid.
Order online from a foreign supplier. Allbirdproducts.com has liquid Baytril available for sale to the global market. A link to the website is provided in the resources section.
