Hi:My bunny (Einee) has a middle ear infection (head tilt) and has been improving in leaps and bounds over the past week - soon to resume a normal life I hope. She is 20 months old and was spayed last year. I had been treating her with a oral suspension but the new vet does not have baytril in an oral suspension. I just discovered that I'mextremely uncomfortable with giving Eineeinjections ofbaytril,which is what he provided me with. Is there a way I can turn the injected formula into an oral suspension for her? The once a day injected dosage is .75 ML "subcutaneous". If that's not possible, I sure would appreciate reinforcement on the injection process. The vet showed me and explained how to scruff her neck and insert the needle into the skin while holding it with your thumb, but when I attempted this the baytril dribbled down onto her fur...where she licked it off to clean herself up! I'm sure I'll pass out trying to do this for fear of hurting her. I don't mind receiving a needle personally but apparently I have a problem giving one. Thanks for any help you can offer.
