    Baytril

    What are the side effects in birds with Baytril?

    My vet didnt really tell me anything about it...

    Oh man, Cheryl, there you ask a question every vet
    wants to know!
    I checked the veterinary scientific literature, and only
    found a handful of papers about domestic poultry.
    Problem is, these side effects are mostly tested with
    animal EXPERIMENTS, and there is no way doing these
    with expensive parrots.
    The only experimental parrots would be budgies and cockatiels...
    but I did not find anything.
    There are a few remarks in my bird medicine books,
    but they are copied from the mammal side effect list.
    The other way of finding out is for the vet to note down
    if an animal treated by him shows any signs.
    After it is not a controlled study, this is a bit vague.
    What is going to happen in your case is--
    if your bird shows side effects, your vet might note them
    down and add them to the knowledge.
    I know, that sounds NOT very reassuring now...
    I copied you the link to the Bayer website.
    It is about MAMMALS.
    Okay, this is the company making the antibiotic,
    but it is pretty much what the vet books say, so they
    dont make anything up.

    my vet loves it. he says its very hard to overdose them on it, so is really very safe. Ellen's article looks great, and seemed to have tested 20x dosage without bad effects. wouldnt recommend it though lol

    is it for your teil in the avatar? (v cute by way) i have seen it put some smaller birds off their food a bit. i know it tastes pretty horrible, but i think it can make their tummies a little upset i find plenty of nice easy digestible food like millet and quinoa helps get over this bit

    not seen anymore side effects, and sparks is on it fairly long term, and i think i have used it with almost all my birds at one time or another. never seen it effect a big bird appetite... just smaller fids... weird, but keep the millet on standby and you;re fine x

    LOL I always ask the none answerable questions... Hmmm... that is a good article.

    Oh well thats good that they cant OD on it! I am not going to try it but none the less good to know.

    Yeah that is Zoey, she passed away at 8 weeks old. That was taken 3 days before she passed away, I loved her so.

    Yes I noticed she gets turned off of food when she takes it. Poor thing!

    Baytril made boomer sick, 30 minutes after taking it he would throw up so his vet took him off of it. Boomer has reactions to lots of medicines though and if any bird gets a reaction it would be boomer. It probably upsets there stomachs and that is why she dont eat well now. Millet is a great food for birds with upset stomachs, its easy for them to digest it so its the perfect not feeling well food.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Hmm I noticed that she doesnt eat after, so we give her the ulcer stuff first then she eats and then once the 2 hours is up we give her baytril.... Then she gets all pouty and sleeps for an hour or so. poor girl.

    Aww poor boomer, that sucks about how he reacts to the meds.
