Description

Baytril is a synthetic, broad spectrum antibiotic used in dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens and other animals. For use in dogs and cats it is normally supplied as Baytril flavour tablets. Baytril can be used in a wide variety of other animals, and for these Baytril Oral Solution is normally best. Baytril has been used very widely in rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice, hamsters, as well as many species of bird and reptile. The solution can be added to drinking water, or placed directly in the mouth. If it is placed in drinking water, it should not be in a metal dispenser if possible as this may denature it chemically and reduce its effectiveness. Baytril is also available as an injection or in a doser for use in piglets. Baytril treats a wide variety of bacterial infections of the alimentary, respiratory and urogenital tracts and skin. Where possible the veterinary surgeon should perform sensitivity testing of the bacteria involved before deciding if Baytril is appropriate.

Baytril should not be used in young growing animals as it can have an adverse effect on the cartilage in joints. Overdosing cats can cause eye damage so accurate dosing is important. The usual dose rate is 5mg/kg bodyweight. For full datasheet information of each product, click on its description above.

Further information

Enrofloxacin is a synthetic, broad spectrum antimicrobial substance, belonging to the fluoroquinolone group of antibiotics. ATC Vet Code: QJ01MA90.

Enrofloxacin is bactericidal in action with activity against Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria and mycoplasmas. The mechanism of action of the quinolones is unique among antimicrobials – they act primarily to inhibit bacterial DNA gyrase, an enzyme responsible for controlling the supercoiling of bacterial DNA during replication. Resealing of the double standard helix is inhibited resulting in irreversible degradation of the chromosomal DNA. The fluoroquinolones also possess activity against bacteria in the stationary phase by an alteration of the permeability of the outer membrane phospholipid cell wall.

The pharmacokinetics of enrofloxacin are such that oral and parenteral administration lead to similar serum levels. Enrofloxacin possesses a high distribution volume. Tissue levels 2–3 times higher than that found in the serum have been demonstrated in laboratory animals and target species. Organs in which high levels can be expected are the lungs, liver, kidney, skin, bone, and lymphatic system. Enrofloxacin also distributes into the cerebrospinal fluid, the aqueous humour, and the foetus in pregnant animals.
