    Default Pneumonia

    I have a 2 week old squirrel weighing 60 grams. I'm almost sure she has pneumonia. How much baytril can I give her and how often. Please help she is going downhill fast!

    I sent the dosing chart but I forget how much water to add. Is it 10 mls/ccs? I'm so tired and can't remember.

    Actually, I think it's 1 ML of water. I hate doing dosing. I'm always so tired.

    NiNY helped with mine and we didn't do it exactly like that. Would you like me to see if I can get her b/c I'm not sure!! I don't want to answer wrong. All I know for sure is that we added 22cc of water to a 500mg tablet and Warrior at 476g got .1cc twice a day. Loaded dose the first day.

    That must have been for a 500mg Cipro tab, right? For 22.7 Baytril I think you'd add 1 CC of water and dose out 0.025 CCs of liquid. I just PMd Jackie and SM.

    Baytril can come in 22.7 68 and 136mg.
    Cipro comes in different strengths.

    Good to know. Then I think that 22.7 would get 1 CC of water added and 136 would get 6 CC added, right? then follow the dosing chart I sent.

    Also, I sent a PM asking her to come back.

    Yes, you're right. Remember the dosing chart is for the ENTIRE day with Baytril.
    So if they want to dose twice daily, they would need to do half the amount in the book, 12 hours apart.

    Usually with one loading dose (the full amount) for the first dose covering the entire day, and then broken in two for two doses each day following, right?

    She told me that she's doubtful of survival. I wish she's come back and tell us more.

    Sorry I have 3 neonates and I'm trying my best to get this one to survive. I have the right baytril as my team leader gave me it already mixed. She's not in town and I'm trying to get the right dosage, but I think I've got it. She got 0.01 this morning so I have to wait 12 hours to give her the other is what I'm getting from you all! I'm hydrating and keeping warm. And praying! Thanks everyone for the help.

    Nancy, if this was the first dose, shouldn't she be given the other .01 now rather than later, especially if she's in bad shape?

    You mean a loading dose that we sometimes talk about?
    I know what you're saying, and it could be done especially if she is this bad, so she
    would give another one at this time (meaning now) of 0.01 and then another one of 0.01 around 6 hours from now,
    and then start first thing in the morning with 0.01 and THEN 12 hours later 0.01, is that what you mean?
