Cipro warning

This was shared in a dog rescue group I'm in - Cipro's often given to dogs for UTI issues, and now is being linked to retinal detachment. There's also a strong link to ligament/tendon issues. www.vancouversun.com/health/popular+antibiotics+carry+warning+about+retinal+de tachment/11695792/story.html

So far as I have heard, not a problem in dogs... at least the retinal pathology. Ligament problems are possible in young dogs as are other bone problems, but most reversible. Retinal problems are problematic in cats at higher doses, but still pretty rare (never seen one personally).. we rarely use Cipro in pets, but Baytril is very similar, as is Zenequin and Orbax, (but both these have less ocular side effects in cats than Baytril).
