    I was just curious what everyone else has been paying for Terramycin. I have a hen with an eye infection so I bought some Terramycin at the feed store for $17.95. After I got home I decided to look online where I buy my dogs flea med and it was only $9.95. Shipping is $5.00 and then only a $1.00 for each additional item. Who would have thought that even paying for shipping would have been cheaper. [​IMG]

    I pay $9.95 at our local feed store for the water-soluble packet. [​IMG]

    Terramycin soluble powder, which is notoriously ineffective, is pretty cheap. Like 5 bucks for a packet

    Terramycin opthalmic ointment up here cost 15 for a little tube. That stuff seems to help some people.

    Hey, I can hook you up!!!! This bag isn't real big, about the size of card envelope maybe. I don't know if they come in different sizes or not, that's just the one I always grab.

    I think some may be talking terramycin soluble powder which is pretty cheap compared to the ointment in the tube. Our Terramycin powder is in the 5.00 range too but when it comes to the little tube ointment it is WAY more expensive.​
