Baytril is an antibacterial tablet for dogs and cats. These film-coated tablets are made without animal protein and are formulated for the management of diseases associated with certain bacteria including those causing skin, urinary and respiratory tract infections. Baytril kills a wide-range of disease-causing bacteria directly at the sight of infection and has been used for this purpose for over 20 years.
Baytril antibacterial tablets are indicated for the treatment of bacterial infections of the urinary tract, prostate, liver, GI tract and other body systems..
Possible Side Effects
Contact your veterinarian if your pet shows signs of anorexia, diarrhea, vomiting, elevated liver enzymes, depression, lethargy, nervousness or any other adverse reactions or behaviors.
Drug & Food Interactions
Compounds that contain metal cations (e.g., aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium) may reduce the absorption of this drug from the intestinal tract.
Prescribing antibacterial drugs in the absence of a proven or strongly suspected bacterial infection is
unlikely to provide benefit to treated animals and may increase the risk of the development of drugresistant animal pathogens.
Administer orbifloxacin with caution in the presence of hepatic insufficiency/impairment. Please refer
to the cat side of this package insert for Precautions related specifically to cats. Quinolones should be
used with caution in animals with known or suspected central nervous system (CNS) disorders. In such
animals, quinolones have, in rare instances, been associated with CNS stimulation, which may lead to
convulsive seizures. Quinolones have been shown to produce erosions of cartilage of weight-bearing
joints and other signs of arthropathy in immature animals of various species. The safety of orbifloxacin
in animals that are used for breeding or that are pregnant and/or lactating has not been demonstrated.
