Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Clavamox question

Hi Mike,

My vet and I were advised by a well known U.S. ferret GI expert not to give=
Clavamox to ferrets because it is notorious for causing GI problems. His =
recommendation was a mix of baytril (enrofloxacin) and amoxicillin because =
it is better tolerated and broader spectrum.

That was last year when we were looking at various treatments for my ferret=
with Eosinophilic Granulomatous (EGE). With this expert's guidance she was=
gradually weaned off prednisolone, did a month on the baytril/amoxi cockta=
il and then was switched over to Imuran from the pred.=20

This protocol made a huge difference in her behaviour and clinical symptoms=
. She was more energetic, war danced for the first time in over a year, pl=
ayed with her furpals and did very well until she later developed a heart b=
lock, which was unrelated to the EGE.=20
