Actually, I have the name of a tetracycline that one can buy without
prescription at pet supply stores...will try to find it. Yes, I heard that
fish antibiotics are the same....isn't that strange that one can get them
without prescription? They don't think that people would connect the dots!
BTW - many of the drugs we buy here, are made in Mexico by US pharmaceutical
companies that have plants there with cheap labor and good quality control!
You would NOT be compromising your animals' health in any way!

Hi Kat,

I don't know about buying it in Mexico, but when I had an infected tooth 
recently, I did some research and ordered Fish Mox online. From everything I

read, it's the same stuff that's prescribed by doctors and vets.  Oddly 
enough, if my pets are sick, I won't take a chance and I take them to the 
vet, but for myself, I'm willing to compromise a bit.
