    Glad to hear she is OK

    Sorry your vet isn't too happy, but you are paying him for a service, so I guess you're entitled to query something if you're worried about it?

    Thank you! shes still sneezy and in need of something tho!

    I think the new one is called Trimethoprim (kind of a older drug apparently) but I may of misheard,

    and I agree completely! better to slightly annoy him then harm marnie! plus he should be happy there getting a extra 14 pound from me lol

    Yes, Trimethoprim Sulpha is a well established drug. I am sure you are right

    What dose rate of baytril has been given? The text books often say 5-10mg/kg twice a day - my vet prescribes 20mg/kg once a day and finds it very effective at this higher dose. Its mode of action is dependent on peak concentration so a higher dose once a day is more effective than a lower dose twice a day. If the swab showed sensitivity to baytril it may be better to discuss sticking to it but at a different dose. Sulfatrim is inactivated by pus so tends not to work well for snotty/nasal type infections as it can't get to the root of the infection. Good luck with your little one x
