Also, after obtaining them, what are the doses??

Hey Dude!
Go to http://www.lambriarvetsupply.com/
when the page comes up, look on the left side and click on
Pet Medications
You will see a page entitled, "pet medicines", click on
Antibiotics
You will see a page entitled, "antibiotics", click on
Non Prescription
Scroll down until you see ... "Fish Cillin" ... and you are there.

They have:

Fish Cillin, 250 mg Ampicillin x 100 Capsules, Non-prescription
Fish Cycline Forte, 500 mg Tetracycline x 100 Capsules, Non-prescription
Fish Cycline, 250 mg Tetracycline x 100 Capsules, Non-prescription
Fish Flex Forte, 500 mg Cephalexin x 100 Capsules, Non-prescription
Fish Flex, 250 mg Cephalexin x 100 Capsules, Non-prescription
Fish Fungus, 200 mg Ketoconazole x 100 tablets, Non-prescription
Fish Fungus, 200 mg Ketoconazole x 30 tablets, Non-prescription
Fish Mox Forte, 500 mg Amoxicillin x 100 Capsules, Non-prescription
Fish Mox, 250 mg Amoxicillin, 100 Capsules, Non-prescription
Fish Mycin, 250 mg Erythromycin x 60 Capsules, Non-prescription
Fish Pen Forte, 500 mg Penicillin x 100 Caps, Non-prescription
Fish Zole Forte, 500 mg Metronidazole x 100 Tablets, Non-prescription
Fish Zole, 250 mg Metronidazole, 100 Tablets, Non-prescription

I have used the fish antibiotics for years, even though they say not for human consumption. I had a doctor write a prescription when I had an absessed tooth, for Cephalexin. It was the same capsule, with the same markings, made by the same company as the Cephalexin they sell for fish.

Not sure what human use the Ketoconazole would be, or the Metronidazole, although I think I read somewhere that the Metronidazole could be used for Gardia infections. Also, I tend to stay away from Tetracycline, because it goes toxic after a year, but the others are great. My doctors usually prescribe (3) 500mg. doses per day, so I get the 500 mg. bottles.
Hope this helps!

Ketoconazole is a more potent / more broad spectrum antibiotic than the Amoxicillin, but if the Amoxicillin will take care of the infection you want to use that instead. You will be less likely to develop resistant strains of bacteria.

Erythromycin can often be used for people who cannot take Amoxicillin - as can the tetracycline.

Metronidazole is an anit-fungal too.

Unhappy

Hello guys, great thread btw. Im in a serious need of cephalexin for myself, and I need to buy it online since it is way less expensive to get it prescribed from a doctor. I have been on different sites online that tell you that you don't need a prescription to buy but once your about to buy something you have to purchase a year worth's membership to their pharmacy site so no to that. I have although found some cephalexin for sell on ebay, it is labeled fish flex for fish. The seller says "It is labeled for fish only that way you don't need a prescription" so im guessing their hinting that you can buy it for yourself but its masked for fish. I googled fish flex, cephalexin etc. and came up on this thread. So if anybody could help me out and let me know if you have bought fish flex cephalexin or know if its ok for human consumption that would be a HUGE help. Please reply thank you.

I'm wondering if Frontline would be effective on humans for keeping ticks and such off you. It lasts longer than deet.

Metronidazole is an anit-fungal too.
ketoconazole (nizoral) and Metronidazole (flagyl) are both anti-fungals. (They both end in **zole). IMHO Flagyl is better then nizoral, but some like the other more.

Amoxicillin is the better choice unless the pt has hypersensitivity, then you'd go with erythromycin.

I try to stay far away from tetracycline. It has way too many side effects. One example is that I have really bad teeth. They are brittle and break often. This is because my mother took tetracycline when she was pregnant. By the age of 18 I had 7 fx teeth, now at age 33 I'm thinking of getting dentures.

If your getting animal abx get pills. EOTWAWKI you many not have a conversion table on hand or know the correct dosage.

Get a copy of the Nursing2008 Drug Handbook at any decent bookstore OR Amazon.com for dosages and side-effects...

This brings up a good point. If you can't befriend a doctor to have/use after TSHTF find a VET. Our vet is very cool, so I asked him one day " If all hell broke loose and there was chaos in this country, could you work on Humans?" He said it would scare the crap out of him, but yes. I don't mean open heart and such, but removing an appendix or tonsils simple things that WILL kill you. He actually told me that unless it was arterial bleeding or a poison based wound, they never go to the hospital at the clinic. Stitches and such are treated there in the vet clinic. It's often over looked, but the vet in your little community is a lot more valueable and much more educated than some may realize.

Food for thought

Its the same as the medications you get from your pharmacy. I've used them as well as a few others from the forum. I'll post picture of both as I have both on hand.

On this website, what about the Bird Sulfa (400 mg Sulfamethoxazole/ 80 mg Trimethoprim)? Is it safe to use, like the fish antibiotics? I'm wondering, because Bactrim, which is the same thing in human antibiotics, is one of the few things my husband is not allergic to. Has anyone ever used this?

I use veterinary cephalexin. For most things 1 500mg capsule 3 to 4 times a day. Most people need to take it with food to prevent upset stomach.

Yes sir,

There is a thread here somewhere with the pictures. If I get a chance I will try to dig them up later and post a link.

Hey all,

Just a short anecdote: A friend of mine sent her kids to school with prescriptions for the school nurse to administer, only problem was the labels were from the "***** Animal Clinic" where she worked (and got the antibiotics from the Vet).

I'm a nurse, and I also grew up showing, racing, and training dogs and horses. I've seen and worked with a bunch of docs (good and bad) but, it's jmho that when it comes down to education and experience you have to question the fact that human docs work only on one species - vets study and work on everything else. I've seen cases where vets were pretty good at diagnosis and some of them are real good cutters.

By the way, I'm a newbie to this forum and I'm grateful there are good folks like y'all on here.

Marc
