    Default Cipro dosage and times

    I have a 6 week old squirrel with pneumonia. She is making the clicking noise when she breathes. We gave her .2 cc's of .3% ciprodex at noon and she responded well. Do we need to give her more? And how often?
    Thanks

    Ciprodex? All I see is reference to eye and ear drops. Is this what you used? Orally?

    The med we use for pneumonia is Ciprofloxacin - which is one of the drugs IN Ciprodex but I doubt anyone here has used it or even knows if it SHOULD be used orally...

    The brand is ciprodex, it's ciprofloxcin in parentheses. Sorry for the confusion.

    Yes ciprofloxacin .3%, dexamethasone .1%
    The squirrel responded well.
    It's all we had, went to Walgreens and they wouldn't help, the vet is temporarily closed.
    Any suggestions?

    Roxmur, I’m working on this. I am ‘back’ calculating this to determine the dose.
