These medications are based on suggestions and recommendations of fanciers and breeders. You must check with your veterinarian before using these medicines. I am not responsible for the improper use of the medications in this listing.
The medications have been classified by their types, and ordered by severity of reaction, the least reaction (1) is first with the most severe reaction (5) last. As with many human medications, those with some side effects tend to be better at solving the problem than those with lesser effects.
There is a common problem with highly specific antibiotics, such as pencillin and ampicillin along with the -mycin classes of antibiotics. Specifically, they seem to have the most effect on the gram positive flora, allowing the gram negatives to florish and cause problems, especially if given orally. Therefore they should be avoided if any of the below medications can be used to solve the immediate problem.
Another page with information about medications and their use is here. I'd check with Squeak's page too! It lists them by well known names in America, United Kingdom and Germany. Check it out!
