Lanasvet, I'm quite confused by your statement could you elaborate? I have never seen nore read studies suggesting this or anyone ever to experience this within their herd. Reason i am asking is because this is the second time i have seen this posted recently, but have never heard of it until now...

Hi Ryan!



My vet buddy says that prolonged exposure to Baytril use CAN damage growth plates in young animals. That said I treated a young fawn with Baytril for over a month because it was the best choice and his only hope for surviving a massive chest wound/and infection. The fawn suffered no ill effects...and survived. Named him Gator because he looked like an alligator bit a huge chunk out of his sternum/chest/ribs.



that is a single bite wound...

Troy, that is incredible and i think the name suits him after that wow!!! I was mainly curious if growth plate issues had/has been noted in whitetails. I had seen something about young canids, however.

young canids were mostly what my vet(small animal) had experience with. I've been training him for several years on cervids He's getting pretty good and does his own research on deer diseases/meds.

I have been told by numerous vets and experienced deerfarmers that you can NOT overdose Baytril or Penicillin...........!
