    You're an angel, Kathy! So when you put the link for where you can get it, does that mean your research has shown that place is about the only place to get it, or are you just saying that's where you get yours?

    Thank you again! I can't wait to see more of this! I think this will eventually need to be a sticky.

    The link that I put there was at the top of the search and it's a reputable source. It's not a medication I use or would use because I have others here that would treat the things it treats. It's also a powder, which makes it very hard to use correctly.

    Tetracycline Powder 5.5% (55mg per gram)


    Duramycin - 10 and Terra-Vet 10 (55mg/gram).

    It's available at TSC and many places online. I have some of the powder, and I have a gram scale, so I weighed it and one teaspoon weighs about 10 grams, so the 800 mg dose is 1.5 tablespoons per gallon, *not* 1 tablespoon per gallon.

    http://www.drugs.com/vet/duramycin-10.html
    Mixing Instructions: 6.4 OZ WILL MAKE:
    100 gal containing 100 mg of tetracycline hydrochloride/gal
    50 gal containing 200 mg of tetracycline hydrochloride/gal
    25 gal containing 400 mg of tetracycline hydrochloride/gal
    12.5 gal containing 800 mg of tetracycline hydrochloride/gal

    Product looks like this:
