Hi all,
I was wondering does anyone know the correct dosage for Baytril 2.5%
ml to litres?
I am reading Colin Walkers 'flying vets' and it gives a differant dosage than what I was preaviously told to give!
I am also looking for the product Baypamune which R Bigwood recommends.Has anyone managed to get this product yet?

Thanks for the help,

Naas.

Based on 2.5% Injectable solution.
Each milliliter contains 25 milligrams.
Dose on live mass as per manufactorer is 2.5 mg per Kilogram
Thus a tenth of a milliliter doses a kilogram.
So it works out at half of this as a pigeon weighs half a kilo. but a tenth of a milliliter seems best on practicle experiance. That is a tenth of a one milliter syringe.

Baypamune: It has come up before. Unless you can get to a vet in Belgium or Germany, forget trying to get it.
Another problem it must be kept under 10 degrees c when transported.

I was told that baytril 2.5% is only for calves. Get Baytril that has a Strenght of 20% it costs around €35 but will last for years. Use at 1ml per 2 litres of water and no more. This is very dangerous stuff and I would advise you to stay away from using it if at all possible as a friend of mine overdosed his birds with a very small amount resulting in the deaths of several pigeons - found dead on the floor, bleeding from the mouth.

Otherwise you can still probably work out the ratio's from the above info.

The previous post mentions the unfortunate classic example of modern day pigeon drug abuse .

Pigeon fanciers really amaze me , most appear to be qualified vets and chemists , this subject is best left to the "real" vets.

Cris Little has a valid objection for Baytrill any strength. Sad if you have YB or OB diseases that cause you to use it. Most pigeon vets think of it as a last resort. More than likely to cause internal organ damage that will put you on the downhill slope of pigeon eminance. Sad to say that if this is the silver bullet to restore your flock to health there is something amiss that you have missed. Maybe Lucas has done research to counter my thoughts. Lets race.

Thanks for that advice, i wasnt made aware of the 28 day expiry date and was sold the product under the "great value for money" slant.

Hi guys,

My vet advises me to give 1 ml Baytril (10%) in 1 liter water.

And not more then twice a year!!!
