klynne, I'm flattered you think the simethicone before motility makes intuitive sense. I have no idea if it's real or not, but I am honestly flattered that even with your bad experience with it you said that.
No searches on here showed any results. Anyone know anything? I'm picking it up Wednesday.
Active ingredient: marbofloxacin
Not approved for use in humans. Approval for dogs. Currently patented by Pfizer so no generic.
Medine agrees: Evaluation of the clinical efficacy of marbofloxacin (Zeniquin) tablets for the treatment of canine pyoderma: an open clinical trial.
Similar in structure to Enrofloxacin.
I can keep going if you'd like. Someone with good pig knowledge needs to find out if this is safe.
Have any other pig medical research that needs doing? I have access to loads of journals.
Edit: As usual, you're right mum. Baytril is Enrofloxacin. Personally, even if you've had a bad experience with baytril, I'd rather use something better documented than a new antibiotic that may or may not be ok with pigs.
Ciprofloxacin - Cipro
Gatifloxacin – Tequin(?)
Levofloxacin - Levaquin
Lomefloxacin - Tequin(?)
Moxifloxacin - Vigamox
Ofloxacin - Floxin
Sparfloxacin - Zagam
Trovafloxacin – Trovan
Mum, No, clavamox isn't for pigs (given to cats all the time though)
Clavamox - amoxicillin trihydrate/clavulanate potassium
Ok soooo...knowing that it's basically the same as Baytril, either I might as well use Baytril (which I don't want to because of what happened with 'Ferd) or I should use something else - what else?
I'm quite lost with all this info.
- I GAVE, dammit!

I wonder about Chlor if the baytril doesn't work? Doxy (dosed at 5mg/kg)?
If the pig stops eating immediately switch a/bs and handfeed. Appetite should return in a day or two.
