    The ban affects only the use of Baytril in poultry; the drug can still be given to pets and other farm animals that can be treated individually.
    They gave Baytril to poultry via the feed. Now they can't. *shrug*

    It doesn't matter whether its legal or not, Bayer says their not going to make it anymore. Amikacin works better anyway.

    I bought Naxcel last spring to have on hand, didn't have to use it this year. It is supposed to be good as well......

    I am glad they banned it. Unfortunately, they will just substitute another antibiotic. They give poultry a lot of supplemental hormones too. I cringe a little every week when picking up that package of chicken in the supermarket and resolve to just slaughter a free-range yard chicken instead next week - but seldom get around to it. -steve hop kins

    From what I understand only the powder and tablet forms are off the market. The injectable Baytril 50 and Baytril 100 is still being sold.

    I agree Amakacin is better anyhow.
