    Quote:Great list. Do you buy all of that Wazine and stuff online? Our feedstore doesn't have most of that, unless it's in the cow section which I forget exists.

    There is one. We did it over the summer, but I don't think it's a sticky thread. Do a search for "medicine cabinet."​

    The feed store here is great. I can get or order everything except the Sulfamethoxide which I get from the vet supplier here in town.

    This is a farming community, so there are alot of resources.

    I do not usually get the tylosin. I have some from a friend that they had left over. I use the Vet Rx, the Wazine, the mineral/vitamine/electrolytes and the poly vi sol the most. The antibiotics are there for very specific bacteria. I usually let the viral infections run thier course or cull. We also have mini horses that get treated with the antibiotics. The wife does this.​
