Gentamicin. Is it deadly?

Postby AuroraB4Dawn » Mon Nov 07, 2011 8:22 am


Hi everyone, My frog recently passed away, however, I'm beginning to think it was because of the drug that was prescribed to me to treat red leg. Gentamicin mixed with 1 liter of water, and to bathe the frog in it once a day for a week. He progressively got better, even jumped. but then 5 days later, started going in a frenzy, had a seizure and broke his own legs in the process. So I'm just curious if anyone else has heard of this drug prescribed to their pets (dragons, cats, dogs).
I believe he had gentamacin poisoning, causing him to be off balance and possibly deaf making him go in a frenzy. If anyone has answers I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
