    Yes, generally speaking we don't see many great results from Baytril but that doesn't mean they don't happen.
    Some people choose to give a combo too to cover all bases.

    I think the best thing to do would be to see a rabbit savvy vet and see what they say

    Don't they have to try Baytril first under the cascade system?

    It worked for us but as we treated both I cannot coment on which treatment was the effective one.

    Morse's ear infection responded well to a combination of Baytril and Depocillin xx

    A Vet can prescribe 'off licence' staright away if an individual case merits it according to the Vet's Professional judgement based on his/her clinical findings

    Not at all Amy. Recently I was at the vet and I was actually given a choice of which antibiotic I thought would work best for the condition my rabbit had. It's using the best one rather than in any particular order

    I agree

    I've had a rabbit where Baytril was given alongside injectable penicillin

    If you did want to see Molly at Rutland House then she is in on Mondays, Thursday's and Fridays I couldn't recommend her more and she did a great job in helping my boy.

    My bunny had inner ear infection causing head tilt and balance issue. He responded very well to depocillian injections. Also for the balance issues alot of people have uses meclizine which is an anti travel sickness medication for humans goes under the name Bonine. My vet told me to use Diphenhydramine which is over the counter Nytol. Ask your vet about these 2 meds for your bun but you defo need to see a very rabbit savy vet ASAP.
