I apologize, I know its one pig per topic, but I need to include them both to get the full story.
I have two piggies who are living together. Both recently developed runny noses and sneezing, so I brought them to the vet right away. Vet had a listen, said their lungs are crystal clear, but they do seem a bit congested in the nasal region. He said it could possibly be due to bedding, but I have them on fleece. They have no other symptoms. They are running and eating happily. He gave me Baytril (I know, not the greatest), 10mg/ml diluted in a fruity flavoring. He told me to give them the antibiotics if their symptoms got worse, but told me he didn't think it would be necessary.
He is a great vet and focuses primarily on guinea pigs and rabbits.
Do you think I should give it a go anyway? I'm so anxious, I don't even have proper probiotics here yet.
Additionally, he told me to give them 0.3ml (pig1) and 0.9ml(for pig 2) twice daily, doesn't that seem a lot?
He told me it isn't ideal for the smaller pig, because she is still growing.
I'm freaking out. Should I just start the larger piggy on the antibiotics without waiting? I'm worried that if I wait, it could potentially quickly progress to a bigger issue. I don't want to give it to smaller pig unless I absolutely have to...
Please- some advice! Thank you!!!
