Have not routinely used Enrofloxacin for nebulization. Would recommend aminoglycoside (gentamicin, amikacin, etc). Enrofloxacin can cause sterile necrosis at injection site - however that is due to local pH changes (Baytril solution is very acidic - I usually dilute with sterile LRS before injecting). Nebulized antibiotics are always diluted into aqueous solution before nebulization - therefore would expect this to minimize potential for sterile tissue necrosis.
