No, I, personally, haven't heard of excessive water consumption with an animal being on Baytril, but, just like with humans, dogs, can react differently to all types of medications. If this is still happening by Monday morning, I'd give your vet a call. Good Luck, and hoping for a swift healing!

George took Baytril for 14 weeks and it didn't make him drink more. I would imagine that it's possible whatever the vet gave him the Baytril for might be causing his thirst?

If Pepcid isn't helping, might ask to change the Baytril for a different antibiotic. Any of them can cause tummy upset and some dogs will get a long with one but not another.


It isn't *terribly* likely to be the Previcox if it's been several days since you gave it to him, altho it is possible. At the same time, Baytril, Cipro, Zeniquin all belong to a class of antibiotics that can be hard on the kidneys and that can cause stomach upset. A reasonable choice from a different antibiotic class might be Clavamox. There are others; that's just an example.
