Is this the right baytril dose?

One of my girls has had rattly breathing recently - she seems fine in herself but it doesn't seem to be shifting so I decided to start a course of baytril as I had quite a lot left over from a previous rat. Her weight was 290g, using the dosage calculator online I got a dose of 0.28 per day, which she was on for a week. There hasn't been any improvement, so popped her up to the vets this morning, assuming they'd put her on a combination of baytril and doxy, but she's given me more baytril and told me to give a lower dose of 0.06 twice daily for 2 weeks. Does this sound right? Just seems a very small amount, especially considering she's had a higher dose before, just worried that she'll build up resistance and that the prolonged infection will cause scarring. Should I continue giving what I was giving her before?
