What is Baytril?

Baytril is an oral antibiotic that is used to treat susceptible bacterial infections of the urinary tract, prostate, liver, GI tract, and other body systems. It is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic that is available as a flavored tablet.

How is this medication given?

This medication is given orally (by mouth). Baytril Taste Tabs can be given every 24 hours (once a day) or the dose can be split and given every 12 hours (twice daily). The correct dose and dosing frequency will be determined by your veterinarian so always follow his/her instructions.

Make sure your pet has unlimited access to water while taking this medication. Do not give Baytril Taste Tabs within two hours of giving dairy products.

If you have difficulty giving your pet this medication, contact your veterinarian for further instructions. Make sure you complete the entire course of antibiotics even if your pet appears to feel better before the entire regimen is complete. If the entire course of treatment is not given, infections can recur or worsen.

How does this medication work?

Baytril is an antibiotic in the fluoroquinolone family. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics work by blocking the bacteria's ability to make DNA. This results in death of susceptible bacteria.

What results can I expect?

Baytril is absorbed from the intestinal tract into the bloodstream. It ultimately settles in the affected body system where it works to kill susceptible bacteria. This medication needs to be given for several days in order to achieve optimal results. If doses are missed or if treatment is stopped before the regimen is completed, infection may recur or worsen.

If your pet suffers from a bacterial infection that is susceptible to Baytril, he/she should start to feel better. Let your veterinarian know if your animal's condition worsens or does not improve after beginning treatment with Baytril.
