    Default Antibiotics dosage needed

    Hi guys,

    I got a baby in that weighs 171 grams. She has puncture wounds and a badly broken right femur. Pus pockets forming. Some are draining.

    can anybody give me dosing for her? Would amox and or cipro be good for this?

    I also have a young boy about the same age as her. Under two months. He has tiny scabs all over. Could this be the beginning of mange? Iíve only had advanced cases of mange before. Is it to young to give revolution?

    thanks in advance for any info you can send my way.

    I think the Revolution would be fine, but maybe post pics of the mangy guy first.. someone might recognize this as something else, dunno.

    Bactrim or Augmentin might be much better choices... Need the strength of the meds you want dosed.

    Hi SquirrelFriend:
    What happened to this poor Squirrel? Has she been seen by a Vet and was the fracture was diagnosed from an x-ray study? If so, are the films available to upload? Is the right rear extremity immobilized and weight bearing prevented?

    Sorry. Stupid me forgot to post the med strength. I do have Bactria. 960 mg pills. Thereís no vet to see here. Itís definitely broken though. Can feel it. Been keeping a cast on it.

    the little boy with possible mange has tons of tiny scabs. Theyíre like the size of flea dirt but heís been rid of fleas since I first got him in two weeks ago. The scabs are too small to get pics of. I wouldnít worry about them if there was a couple or so but thereís lots. Theyíre along the edges of his ears too.

    Sent PM with dosing for Bactrim.

    What you are describing is pretty much textbook mange. Can you get ivermectin or Revolution?
