Indications:Baytril® (brand of enrofloxacin) Antibacterial Tablets are indicated for the management of diseases associated with bacteria susceptible to enrofloxacin. Baytril Antibacterial Tablets are indicated for use in dogs and cats.
Baytril treats and manages a variety of bacterial pathogens in dogs. Effective against both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria in the urinary tract, respiratory system and skin.
Urinary Tract Infections: Exhibits rapid bacterial action with excellent renal tolerance in the urinary tract and the prostate. Concentrates in the urine via renal excretion, glomerular filtration and active tubular secretion. It also penetrates the prostate, mucosal epithelium and any inflamed tissues.
Respiratory Infections: Irreversibly inhibits bacterial gyrase, which is a key enzyme for bacterial replication. This results in a rapid destruction of pathogens in the tissues, fluids and phagocytic cells in the respiratory system. Attains excellent concentrations in pulmonary and bronchial tissues, which is important for treating acute and chronic respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and pneumonia.
Dermal Infections: Concentrates in inflamed tissue to provide excellent antibacterial action at the site of the infection. Effective against Staphylococcus intermedius, Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
Active ingredient: Enrofloxacin 22.7 mg or 68 mg
