Treating beardie with baytril

Postby Kayda » Sun Jan 17, 2021 8:32 am

Hello all,

My 4 month old female was given baytril for a mild respiratory infection on Friday I’m just wondering what I can do for her while she is taking it, she’s a bit under the weather - end of tail is dark and not eating/drinking as much. Still moving around but sometimes a bit sluggish and “blah” lol... She was given 0.03ml twice a day for 14 days, she weighs about 47 grams. I heard probiotics like reptaid would work but the pet store doesn’t have any of it and also doesn’t have bene bac either. What can I do for her in the mean time?

Any advice would be awesome, thanks!

She is still quite small. I hope she feels better soon and the meds work. I would focus on dripping water on her nose to lick up. Keeping her well hydrated will help her system while on the meds. You can also try some probiotics if you want to. Soy based non dairy yogurt may be helpful. You can also get Reptophilus here https://bug-de-lite.com/Item/Reptophilus
