Cindy,

FishMox is NOT the same as Clavamox, FishMox is the same as Amoxicillin. 
Clavamox is a mixture of amoxicillin and clavauntic(sp) acid which enhances 
the amoxicillin.  FishMox is fine to use, just make sure you know how to 
dose it for cats, it comes in 250 mg or 500 mg capsules.  Dosage for cats is 
5-10 mg per pound once or twice a day.


Clavamox is available from overseas without a script, but tends to be a bit 
expensive.  The human form of clavamox is called Augmentin and has the same 
ingredients, but you have to be careful with dosages for cats as they way 
ingredients are listed tends to be confusing.  Tablets of the same dosage 
vets give use to be sold overseas, but as far as I know, it has been 
discontinued by every place I know.


Doxycycline is and excellent antibiotic and is the antibiotic of choice for 
many things in the Cornell University Shelter Medicine program.  You can buy 
it without a script as Bird Biotic  in 100 mg capsules. dosage for cats is 
max 4 mg per pound once a day.


Both FishMox (amoxicillin) and Bird Biotic (doxycycline) must be mixed with 
a liquid for proper dosing.  Additionally, doxycycline should never be given 
to a cat in any dry form as it can cause damage in the esophagus.  You can 
use a lot of different liquids to mix these with, but I use 1/3 water and 
then add 2/3 lite kayro syrup, It helps kill the taste and doesn't go bad. 
Amoxicillin must be refrigerated after mixing and lasts 10 to 14 days, but 
it can be frozen for long periods.  Doxycycline need not be refrigerated 
(unless the liquid you use needs refrigeration) and should be discarded 
after 30 days.


Here are a couple of links http://www.1drugstore-online.com  and 
http://www.supersavermeds.com/


If anyone is interested in Zithromax, I get it from a contact in Thailand 
much cheaper than here.  Email me off list and I will put you in contact 
with him.


Please, everyone be sure to know the proper dose for cats for any med you 
are giving and how to get that dose from the product you have.

Lorrie,

I'm late chiming in here. I can't help you with Acarexx, but look into 
FishMox for the clavamox. It can be ordered without a prescription and 
from what I was told, it's the same as clavamox. I even ordered it for

All of these meds can be purchased online from revival, valley vet, lambriar 
vet supply, or Thomas labs themselves who market these to all these outlets. 
Revival animal health has the best selection of different antibiotics and they 
send a sheet along that tells how to dilute, store, and administer each 
antibiotic. Or The Plumb Veterinary Drug Handbook is an awesome book to have 
around and supplies everything we need to know about dosages for all sorts of 
animals and also drug interactions. Revival sells 16 oz bottles of sorbital  
syrup to use as a carrier, but I must say that I like your water and Karo syrup 
idea(-:  Clavamox is just one of those that I don't think we'll ever see

Question: Is the Fishmox sold in the same form as Amoxi, pink powder, which
is really a pediatric formula, packaged for veterinary usethat's why it
tastes as it does because it was never reformulated to appeal to an animal's
taste.
When I get Amoxi in Mexico, the flavor is slightly different, more palatable
for cats, however, the Clavamox is more acidic and pineapple flavor than the
one here.

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

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.

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.

 When I get Amoxi in Mexico, the flavor is slightly different, more 
 palatable for cats, however, the Clavamox is more acidic and pineapple 
 flavor than the one here.

 All of these meds can be purchased online from revival, valley vet, 
 lambriar vet supply, or Thomas labs themselves who market these to all
these outlets.
 Revival animal health has the best selection of different antibiotics 
 and they send a sheet along that tells how to dilute, store, and 
 administer each antibiotic. Or The Plumb Veterinary Drug Handbook is 
 an awesome book to have around and supplies everything we need to know 
 about dosages for all sorts of animals and also drug interactions. 
 Revival sells 16 oz bottles of sorbital  syrup to use as a carrier, 
 but I must say that I like your water and Karo syrup idea(-:  Clavamox 
 is just one of those that I don't think we'll ever see labeled for 
 fish or birds unfortunately!  Excenel, an injectable cephlasporion 
 works very very well and has been labeled for cats now for several years.
 
 Take care

 Cindy,
 
 FishMox is NOT the same as Clavamox, FishMox is the same as Amoxicillin.
 Clavamox is a mixture of amoxicillin and clavauntic(sp) acid which 
 enhances the amoxicillin.  FishMox is fine to use, just make sure you 
 know how to dose it for cats, it comes in 250 mg or 500 mg capsules.  
 Dosage for cats is
 5-10 mg per pound once or twice a day.
 
 Clavamox is available from overseas without a script, but tends to be 
 a
 bit expensive.  The human form of clavamox is called Augmentin and has 
 the same ingredients, but you have to be careful with dosages for cats 
 as they way ingredients are listed tends to be confusing.  Tablets of 
 the same dosage vets give use to be sold overseas, but as far as I 
 know, it has been discontinued by every place I know.
 
 Doxycycline is and excellent antibiotic and is the antibiotic of 
 choice
 for many things in the Cornell University Shelter Medicine program.  
 You can buy it without a script as Bird Biotic  in 100 mg capsules. 
 dosage for cats is max 4 mg per pound once a day.
 
 Both FishMox (amoxicillin) and Bird Biotic (doxycycline) must be 
 mixed
 with a liquid for proper dosing.  Additionally, doxycycline should 
 never be given to a cat in any dry form as it can cause damage in the 
 esophagus.  You can use a lot of different liquids to mix these with, 
 but I use 1/3 water and then add 2/3 lite kayro syrup, It helps kill 
 the taste and doesn't go bad. Amoxicillin must be refrigerated after 
 mixing and lasts 10 to 14 days, but it can be frozen for long periods.  
 Doxycycline need not be refrigerated (unless the liquid you use needs 
 refrigeration) and should be discarded after 30 days.
 
 Here are a couple of links http://www.1drugstore-online.com  and 
 http://www.supersavermeds.com/
 
 If anyone is interested in Zithromax, I get it from a contact in 
 Thailand
 much cheaper

Lorrie,

I'm late chiming in here. I can't help you with Acarexx, but look into 
FishMox for the clavamox. It can be ordered without a prescription and from 
what I was told, it's the same as clavamox. I even ordered it for myself 
once when I had an infected tooth.

Does anyone know where I can buy RX vet meds overseas without an RX?
With 25 cats in my shelter and at home I need to keep some basic
things at home such as Acarexx for earmites, Clavamox (antibiotic)
etc.

Thanks Cindy... I forgot all about FishMox. I ordered some
years ago, and need to get a fresh supply.

As for Acarexx.. A friend gave me the recipe for this. She
rescues wildlife as well as dogs and cats.  She buys Ivermectin
injectable for cattle and swine.  Then she uses two drops mixed
with two drops of mineral oil in each ear.  She says this works even
better than Acarexx. A vet tech gave her this info.

Some shelters or Humane Societies do sell to rescuers/small shelters for a 
lesser price w/o a prescription..of course it helps if they know you and what 
you do (as in my case, I buy abx like clav, Biomox(amoxi) from a nearby Humane 
Society, also I get Trifectant(desinfectant for cages) from them)

Lorrie,
Clavamox and fish mox are the same, both contain amoxicillin, but clavamox 
contains an extra ingredient, clavulanate potassium. It actually works much 
better than amoxicillin. Not something that is available  OTC like FishMox.  If 
you go to revival animal health they have a whole slew of otc antibiotics by 
Thomas Labs. They are all human grade simply labeled for fish or birds or 
whatever(-:

Good luck

I always buy Amoxicillin and Clavamox in Mexico, although they require
prescriptions now - but if you go to small local pharmacies, you can get
them without a Rx.  Very inexpensive. They have other meds, too, but that's
