I've got a girl who has the infamous Ratty Snuffles (occasional noisy/honking breathing, sneezing a little more than usual), so I was looking at getting her to the vet's for some baytril. I've got a bottle of Sulfatrim (Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole) left over, though, so I was wondering if anyone knew whether that'd do the job?

Assuming it's Mycoplasma pulmonis causing the respiratory symptoms (frequently though not always the case), no.
