the new culture I had done has shown pasturella so I have just spoken to the vet and have to treat the whole group, 5 rabbits twice a day with baytril for 10 days. Does that sound about right? good job I'm not working :shock:

Yep but it may take longer than that with a stronger antibiotic to shift in the infected rabbit.

yep he wants to see the worst affected ones after 10 days. Not sure whether my rats would need treating too as they're in contact with the rabbits :?

oh I've been moaning since xmas :lol: will be moaning even more if i have to treat 5 rats as well :shock: luckily I'm off work till september so won't need to be up at 5 to get all there meds done!!! :D lets just hope the baytril works this time, none of them is badly infected just upper respiratory! I hope I don't spill any either as he seems to have worked out exactly how much I need for 10 days, my old vet just estimated so I always had some left over!!!
