Doxyvet IS doxycycline which you are already using. Just a different form.

Do you want me to double-check your doses?

I would need the weight of your rat, and the concentrations of your baytril and doxy.

If he does not start to improve within a few days you will need to get the vet to change the antibiotics or add another antibiotic such as azithromycin and possibly other meds
If the meds are helping, he will need to stay on them for at least 4 to 6 weeks

It would be a good idea to have lilspaz68 to check the dose because vets sometimes under dose

i’m not too sure of the dosage of the baytril but i know the doxy is 100 mg/ml and he is 264 grams
