mollygog is on a distinguished road
Default Tail bob

I haven't posted in a long while as I have had no concerns.
My Elvis has been to the vets, he had a very very mild click when breathing. I can only hear it when I am right up next to him, he is otherwise completely fine.eating , drinking being naughty.
We have one avian vet and I don't like him ,when I took Norman to see him he gave me the wrong dosage of baytril for him and was useless. So I decided to take Elvis to my regular vet's as they said they had one vet who dealt with exotics.
He assessed him and examined him and couldn't find anything untoward apart from the very mild click and tail Bob so they again gave me baytril.
Now this baytril is 2.5% oral and I have to give him 0.2ml twice per day.
Please can someone tell me if this sounds correct as when I had nornan the avian vet told me 0.4ml twice per day and apparently this was way too much which I suspect now probably made Norman worse as he had liver disease. I do not want to hurt my little man.
Does this sound like the correct dosage
Thank you so much

Emma,

You need to go by what you were told by your Avian Vet with regard to the Baytril dosage for your current budgie.

If you have questions or concerns about the dosage, those need to be addressed with the vet - not with members of a forum.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

I hope your little Elvis has a full and speedy recovery.

Best wishes.
