    Default Depocillin - Dosage?

    Could anyone tell me the recommended dosage for the above please?

    E.g how often should they have it?

    Its usually 0.25mls for bun under 2.5kgs and 0.5mls for buns over 2.5kgs. A more accurate dosage would probably be 0.2mls per kg.

    Its normally given every other day, but can be given more/less frequently.

    Thistle had Depocillin when he had syphilis. I can't for the life of me remember the dose, but even if I did know, it'd be no good to you because he's a great fat lump and needed loads!

    Is this for Ginger's nose? Still no better?

    Thanks abbymarysmokey

    And yes georgie for ginger's nose still very runny apart from today when biccy cleaned it all up vet said baytril hadn't helped.

    I've been told by vet a 0.25ml of depocillin once a week for 3 weeks (ginger weighs 1.23kg) but I have concerns that is not enough? But I did not want to doubt my vet without evidence and only want what's best for gingypops

    Vet checked her teeth and said there is a small spur on one of her teeth in the side she had a runny eye a few weeks back so I'm just waiting for a call for her to b xrayed in case this is all her little teefs but their xray is borked so I have got to take her to another branch 45 Monz away.

    She's fine in herself though eating drinking popping weeing and running around. Just really worriee about her.

    Biccy just grooms it all to keep her clean bless.

    Not sure of the dosage as when Frankie has his they weigh him first. He had it every three days but it does really depend. Sending vibes for your poorly bunny.

    Worth asking the vet about ciprofloxacin eye drops (can have it nasally and topically to the eyes). Fewer side effects than oral or injectables. Do you have a probiotic? Everyone on here uses something different but definitely worse getting hold of something if you're looking at many weeks of antibiotics. Good luck xxxx

    I don't know about using it for a runny nose etc, but Thistle only had one injection a week for syphilis.
