Help! How do I nebulize my Beardie's URI??

Postby Steviesnugget » Mon Jun 21, 2021 1:40 pm

Hi everyone!! First Post and I love this forum so TYIA!!
Nugget is my 1 yr old beardie. He was acting very strange so I took him to an exotic vet. They did X-rays and said he had an URI. They prescribed .2ml Baytril 2 x day. They wanted me to bring him in the next day for two separate nebulizer treatments and then at least 2 more times after that. It's really far from my house and VERY expensive. Can I nebulize at home? Dosage of Baytril OR Colloidal Silver to water/saline?? I have a plastic container and a nebulizer just not sure how to do it and dont want to overdose Nugget. I also have powdered probiotics and bee pollen but he isn't eating or drinking so not sure how to get it into his system!! The doctor also prescribed a very dark and sticky vitamin mix that Nugget loves. The vet said to give it to him 2 x day for life.

Please help us make this little guy better !!
Thank you!!!

You need to ask your vet to mix some up and let you do it at home, that's what I did a few years ago. That and the batryl should do the trick. I have the same setup here at home for these things.

You are now a slave!!!

I can help with ratios for nebulizing. What is the strength of your Baytril solution that you
If he has a stubborn respiratory infection nebulization can be used 1-2 times daily, for a
couple of weeks. Usually the treatment should last for a 10-15 minute time frame.
Just let me know what the Baytril solution/strength is & I can help with the mixing for you.
