Does anybody have dosage info for using both Baytril and Doxycycline at the same time to fight paratyphoid complicated with respiratory illness?

I have some concern that if your birds have been on baytril, for a while, they may have developed a yeast infection which you are contributing to respiratory illness. Baytril is very powerful drug and destroys good bacteria and bad. Do you have nystatin oral suspension?

Baytril dosage: 5~7,5 mg twice a day
Doxycicline: 7,5 mg twice a day (you can go up to double the dose in severe infections)

Administer antibiotics two hours apart!
Remove any grit and calcium sourses.

Thanks, one of the birds with respiratory is the mate of the bird with paratyphoid. He has never had any Baytril. Tonight I will just give the
Doxy. I want to order some med supplies to have on hand . What is the best source?

Say can I combine Terramycin with Baytril? The doxy I got from the vet is
a sticky candy liquid that I'm sure the bad bacteria will like.

There isn't one best source, unfortunately.

Superflyer, if you got the Doxy from a vet there is a good chance the suspension was made with carboxymethylcellulose, a thickening agent that may look syrup like, but is not. Besides, even if it was made in a syrup base, syrup base by the way is how I make all of my own home suspensions, the small amount of sugar in a dose will not , in my opinion, exacerbate the bacterial infection.
