Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you. I do apologize for the delay in another expert jumping in to answer.
Why is she on Baytril injections and not oral? The oral works just as effectively for this type of a problem with less pain and possibly complications if not administered properly at home. If we have a terribly resistant infection as known based on a urine culture/sensitivity panel as was sent to the lab, then I would highly suspect Baytril to be one of the first drugs this organism is resistant to. There are other choices, especially if we are turning to using an injection of a product.
Is she on any other medications right now?
Where is this wetness (hind end or face/neck or side)?
What testing has been done to arrive at a conclusion that baytril must be given as an injection to cure her (e.g., urinalysis, urine culture, CBC, chemistry profile, X-rays)?
Thanks for a answering some questions. tHis helps me provide you with a better answer.
