I just found out that in January all animal antibiotics will need a prescription. This is to restrict the commercial practice of keeping animals on them continuously. So this means the small holder would need a prescription as well when antibiotics are needed. We don't have a vet who will treat poultry within 200 miles, let alone can I afford one for most things. In light of this, which antibiotic is recommended to have on hand? I'd like to "stock up" so I have some when I need it, not after driving 200 miles and paying enough to replace my whole flock.
