The day before yesterday Oscar went in to the vet because he started showing signs of respitory infection. He went with my daughter s hamster that is losing all of her hair. Anyway the infection was not that bad and he was put on Baytril as a precaution. The doc gave him his first shot, he then started pulling his leg in his shell and rubbing it against his face, he started limping and then refusing to walk, such a drama king, lol. I realize Baytril stings very very bad. Here is my issue though, I gave him another injection last night and two hours later he threw up. I was told that is a sign of an allergy to the meds. I called the 24 hour care clinic and without any warning their exotic vet landed a fabulous job back east and there is no more there I was referred to another vet who told me on the phone that Baytril causes kidney damage in tort s and is not first choice for them. The doctor that gave him Baytril is my normal doc that I see during the day, but now I am wondering why she would give him that if it is so bad, someone please help me! The other vet treats for the Pacific Northwest herp society, the Reptile Zoo etc. Does anyone know about Baytril in Torts? Now I am wondering if I should change vets.
