    Hello,

    I have been using Duramycin-10 as my broad spectrum antibiotic, but when trying to buy online today it seems that everyone is out of stock. Is this product being phased out? Jefferspet.com has it for $7.99 (out of stock) and on Amazon there are a few packets for $20+ for the same 75g packet.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a substitute? I prefer a water soluble product. At the moment I have a respiratory thing going through my flock and would like to stop it fast.

    Thank you,

    Kristen

    Not all antibiotics will be unavailable. Check with Foys pigeon catalog or some of the dog supply catalogs )Doc Harris) to determine what will be available.

    Revival Animal Health - 800-786-4751 has (and they assure me will continue to have) available Fish Cycline - Tetracycline 250 mg at $26.99 for 30 capsules. They also have 15 or so other antibiotics available. I just purchased doxycycline from them. Give a call and request a catalog.
