Yea that is bullshit, they pulled similar shit way pre covid regarding a flea pill called capstar, give pill to your cat or dog, kills all fleas on them quick style and then proceed with the monthly treatment.
Now you have to have a prescription for it from the vet because it is given orally.... such fkn booolshit.

Yep, just tried a couple of places not listed, won't take the order! :mad:

Back to the old fashioned method,,,, see ya local doc for a head cold, have him or her write a Rx for 100 of something every now and then.

If you've been a patient for a while, most will accommodate you to build up a stash for emergencies.

These fucking assholes in DC............

As of right now it seems like they took my order but I’m not sure:


The quantities and breadth of selection have really diminished (30 caps in lieu of 100)

My fish and birds respond well to these.

They'll want a prescription. I had an order all filled out and just cancelled it.

I can get a written prescription from my vet and bring it to the drugstore and pay about $4.00 for what they charge 40 dollars for.

I tried twice last evening, everything was fine, then a pop up, order canceled, no explanation.

They hit my credit card, but 30 seconds later, put the money back in the account.

Added;
It was a computer error on their part.

The smaller places did not get the cease order to stop selling these antibiotics across the counter, so far, so, ya got some wiggle room.

Thanks @yellowhand . I just placed an order. I have some on hand but might as well get more while I can from the US.
They are shutting it down at the large places, I tried Chewy, funny name, but were good prices, and nope, no sales.

Cipro is one to get,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,if you only get one, it treats a whole lot of stuff,,,,some of the really bad "stuff".

I got amoxicillin, ciprofloxacin, and azithromycin. Amox works on me but not the wife and daughters. A Z-pak works on them, and the Cipro as well.

I have bought from these guys before but I usually used Jeffers Pet, but theirs was already pulled.

They always put an expiration date of a couple years out on them.

Degradation is a function of storage conditions much more than some arbitrary date on a label in the case of MOST factory-packaged oral meds.

Heat is always the enemy.
