Injecting Baytril can be dangerous as it can OCCASIONALLY cause very, very nasty burns round the injection point, and there's no way to tell which rodents it will affect until it happens. I never inject Baytril now as it happened to one of mine, and after some research I found that it seemed to be quite common.

Here is a link about how to (and how not to) administer Baytril: http://www.rathealth.co.uk/articles/baytril.html. It is a rat page, but it's basically the same information for mice, they're very similar anatomically. It also has a picture of a baytril burn on a rat at the bottom of the page.

Hope Apollo feels better soon!
