    Default Seeking dosage info for baytril

    Hello to everyone, I currently live in the panhandle of Florida and I am new to the board. I recently had around a 5 week old grey squirrel who ended up with pneumonia and did not make it. I invested a lot of time and reading into the little guy and was pretty sad he didn't make it. From my understanding the best medication to treat pneumonia would be baytril which I could not get at the time but found a way to get it after he was gone. I have decided to be proactive and make a squirrel box with all the things I bought for him and all the notes I took about treating and caring for him that way if another little guy comes along I will be more prepared rather than scouring the internet and calling every rehabber around. So what I am looking for is guidance on dosage for baytril. The only thing I found and am not sure if its accurate is at the low end the dosage should be 2.5mg/1,000g and at the high end 5mg/1,000g. Is this accurate? I need additional information if so. I would really like to know the dosing guidelines for this medicine or where I can read up on it so I can add this to my kit. I've seen guidance given out to particular cases on here but not the overall dosing information. Thank you for any information or sources you guys might have on this.

    I have a vet appointment today looking for the answers to that. My little guy Timmy came down with pneumonia yesterday. I'm so worried about him, leaving for the dr. Soon. Wish us luck.
