    Default Bactrim dosage for 3tr old eastern gray

    I have a 425 gm 3 year old female that has a wound on her lower back. I'm not sure how she got it and it doesn't look infected. I have 800/160mg generic bactrim on hand and would like to have dosage information on hand in case it becomes infected.

    Sent you dosing info in a PM.

    Please try to put up a nice, clear pic of this wound. Is she an indoor girl or an outdoor girl?

    Thank you for the information. I will post a picture when she wakes up later. Right now she's being uncooperative and grouchy! I don't want to stress her out.

    Does she go outside? Do you have a dog? Could this be a bite? Do use the Betadyne the way I told you.

    That second pic is quite a pose. If not for the wound, it is kind of PlaySquirrel, huh?

    She is strictly indoors. I do have a dog, but Remi (my dog) is not allowed in Lucky's room during her out time. I live on 35 acres and my home sits in a 10 acre yard (or field) and being allergic to cats I do get the occasional mouse in the house this time of year. So a bite is a possibility. She has limbs to climb and jump on so I thought she may have punctured herself somehow.

    Yes,, I am doing the betadyne.

    And her picture...that's her Diva pose.

    No, those are big, not something a mouse would do. Also all of the hair loss around them... Where it is on the body and with two wounds it looks like either something like a dog picked her up and shook her, or I have seen similar on squirrels that got picked up and accidentally dropped by a hawk. Not to be too personal, but is there anyone else in the house who might have made a mistake with the no dog rule?

    If not, I would start hunting in her area and figure this out because if not, it could happen again.
