Thank you - good information if I run out of the Amoxi that I get in Mexico
- we're going in November, and I always stock up.  A bottle that makes 5
small ones that one gets from the vet, costs about $12...a little bit more
from small local pharmacies, but no need for a prescription.  The large
outlets with pharmacies like Costco or Sam's Club required prescriptions
since last year - and I bet it's a deal with Mexico so that tourists
wouldn't buy meds there and spend a lot of $$$$ in US to fill big Phrma
coffers instead.

No, the fish mox is sold in capsule form in 250 mg per cap or 500 mg. You
can dilute with water or the recipe Gary has. There is also the sorbitol
syrup. If you mix with water than you have to make sure that you shake it
very well and even pull back on your syringe a little and shake it in the
syringe immediately before you administer it or the powder will be left
behind in your syringe. Not all of it but a little. It is 50 mg every 12 hrs
for cats. 25mg for teeny kittens.
