non-prescription antibiotics

Discussion in 'Survival/Preparedness Forum' started by Hummerbike, Jul 6, 2013.

  1. Was looking for some generic antibiotics for my dog who develops a prostrate infection about every six months or so and found this web site. They sell antibiotics without a prescription.
    I noticed that they sell Cipro really cheap. This is a good antibiotic for Anthrax prevention and treatment and can be effective for many other things as well.
    My wife works with pharmacists and is going to ask them what antibiotics we should keep in stock for emergencies.
    Has anybody used them or do you have another source?

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
  2. So you'll place your (and maybe your family's health) in a public health emergency on pet meds?

    First of all, it's "prostate" second, it's approved for use with pets and in a dosage for pets. If a public health emergency occurred there's Cipro, Doxy, and Amox that may be the best drug depending on what's most effective. Any of the drugs I mentioned may be given based upon screening during a mass dispensing event.

    Prescription drugs are just that. There are some instances where some individuals may have drugs prescribed to trophylax first responders to respond to the initial event. Every state has a plan for this.

  3. I would actually like to keep a Z-pack (Zithromax) pack or two around.

    Has always done great for me in the past when I come up with something out of the ordinary.

  4. Sorry about misspelling prostate. Some people derive a great deal of satisfaction in correcting other peoples mistakes.

    If you had taken the time to use the link you would have seen that they sell drugs for humans as well as for pets.

    You might even find another source for your Viagra if you look.
  5. There was a very large discussion about this and other antibiotics here a little while back.
    Do a search and there will be a wealth of info for you in this forum.
  6. Sorry, prostrate is a pet peeve of mine, no satisfaction just a correction. I don't know how Viagra got entered into the discussion as I don't need it (that's the least of my worries!).

    Cipro, Doxy, etc. are FDA approved prescription drugs. I'd question any website offering generics especially without a prescription for these drugs. I did look at the link by the way and personally wouldn't trust what I'd get.

    Seriously Hummberbike, didn't mean to ruffle your feathers, my dad's a Veterinarian and I've grown up in the world, also being an Army Medic for 21+ years. Watch out for what you get on the internet, also consider getting a prescription from a Vet. and get it filled at Walmart which now fills pet prescriptions.

    Yeah, the last one got a little "heated".
  8. Research fish antibiotics. You can get them at any pet store.
  9. I over reacted. I'm sorry.

    My Vet wants you to only buy drugs from him at his marked up prices. If you insist on him writing a prescription, he will, but he charges a fee.
    For instance, if you get a heartworm test from him and buy the Ivermectin from him he will let you go two years before requiring another test.
    If you want him to write a prescription he will charge you and only write it for one year.
    Since my dog is getting older I was looking for a cost effective source of drugs.
    By the way, I bought a bottle of Ivermectin at a feed store for $36 that will protect my dog from heart worms for at least five years. That's a lot less then Heart Guard.

    Not sure where you could find sutible antibiotics without a prescription in the US but remember to keep a good amount of anti-septic products on hand so you decrese the chances of needing antibiotics.
  11. Only problem I have with mail order places is that your really don't know if your getting the real thing, or some sugar pill make to look like a known product.

    Do the homework folks.'08.
  13. I give my dogs sentinel for worms, fleas etc. and they are made in a plant in the US. It closed for a while because the human side could not pass inspection... the pet side had no problem. My vet said that they don't spend the time and money creating special drugs for animals, they just give them the ones that they use on us.

  15. Sorry Hummerbike, didn't know that's where you were going with this. I don't know if it's the law or not, but I believe you have a right to have a prescription filled where ever you want to, and personally I wouldn't go to a Vet. that would not write a prescription to be filled somewhere else, as the pet is the focus.

    Our vet "hospital" also charges an arm and a leg until I told my wife to get a prescription for Sentinal instead of filling it at the Vet Hospital Pharmacy. She told them what on line costs were and the Vet. Pharmacy matched the price.

    Also, do remember that Walmart will now fill pet prescriptions. FWIW also look for places like Tractor Supply (TSC) that has a Vet day where they give cheap immunizations for pets. That's a racket as well.

    We use colloidal silver which we make ourselves with a small generator (which cost about a hundred bucks). Colloidal silver is antibacterial and antimicrobial. It can be used internally or topically. We've simply had tremendous success with it. We'll spray it on a cut or bite or rash and it takes care of the problem. The family has used it for eye infections, a sore throat, the flu or the common cold.

    A little common sense is required. You're not going to drink a gallon of the stuff. Normally about 1/3 of a shot glass when you're sick is about right. Topically as much as is needed.

    It isn't magic, just an old world remedy that works well. Some websites will try to scare you by saying you'll turn blue. I suppose if you drank large amounts every day for the heck of it you might. But the small amount needed when you get sick isn't a problem. We've been using it as such for over 15 years without an issue. I 'might' drink a total of a couple of shot glasses full over the period of an entire year. And as I mentioned, spraying topically for all sorts of issues isn't a problem.

    Best of all, it is a DIY sort of thing to make. This tends to piss off drug companies but so be it.

    As a side note, if anyone makes their own, store it in a dark glass bottle like an old root beer bottle and keep it under the counter.

  17. That has a very bad website reputation according to WOT.

    I order my dogs Interceptor from Australia. It takes a couple of weeks to arrive but I have never had a problem. I get it from
  18. Where's that pic of that blue guy? :tongueout:

    IMHO BAD advice...
  19. I don't condone the use of animal medication on humans because it is not legal but just to let you know most of our animal medications come from the same companies that make the medicines for humans and the medicine is made With the same standard it would not make sense for most drug companies to produce the same medicine twice once for humans and Once for animals I have actually purchased anabiotic's and medicine for animals where the packaging says FDA approved and it is stamped over saying for veterinary use only

  20. Oh and by the way Walmart and Publix have a free list of antibiotics and other medicines If your veterinarian writes a prescription for any of those meds you can get them filled for free there
