    There's my question in the title. I have 500 mg - a dosage for me - like 4 pills plus a refill on it. If it is, it'll save me an emergency vet visit and I can get the vet out on Monday/Tuesday. Otherwise, I'll have to do the emergency thing.

    Thanks a bunch!

    yep, you can do it yourself! Not with the pills though. TSC or Southern States should carry Tetracyline and Penna. With complete instructions.
