Do you already have the Baytril and doxy? Are they in liquid or pill form? If they're liquid, does the bottle say how many mg/ml?  If they're pills, how many mg are in each pill? If you're unsure of these numbers, can you post links to where you ordered them?

*edit* I'm seeing that it's possible that the medication has already been mixed in some sort of suspension. If this is the case, you'd have to ask your vet how many milligrams of medicine are in each milliliter of liquid (mg/ml). Without this number, there's no way of knowing how much to give your rat.

Iím not good at mathing. Got a friend with a 15.5oz female rat with uri and we live in a small town with one terrible vet (that I personally donít trust).

What dosages of baytril and doxy we looking at for her?

This particular vet premeasures the meds in syringes and theyíre tiny amounts. He does not put any information about the medication on them.. concentration, etc.
Sorry to hear about the passing of your little boy.  It is hard, but it helps when they pass easily.  Play hard with your brothers Stan.
Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear this. Play hard at the bridge with your brothers, Stan.
I'm sorry for your loss, even when you know it's coming, it will always hurt. Just know that they had the best time being with you.
So sorry for your loss - it's so hard to lose our furbabies  :'( Play hard at the bridge Stan
Mrs. Ratty here,

     :( Sad news to report:  our remaining boy, Stanley, died this evening around 7:00 pm.  It wasn't unexpected, but it's still sad when it happens.  He went quietly, without struggling or gasping for air.  Stanley now joins his brothers Ollie and Finn on the rainbow bridge.

     Mr. Ratty posted some tribute pictures of Stan on his Facebook page.  Here's the link:
