    Does anyone have a link or list of the proposed animal meds that might be removed from the shelf in 2017? Im hearing its some antibiotics but, some are saying all dewormers will be removed as well (which I highly doubt) not trying to start a debate just preparing my resource list just in case.[​IMG]

    So far it seems that injectable antibiotics such as Tylan will still be available but. Water solubles such as corid, duramycin-10 etc...will only be available through a vet prescription. The reason I brought this up is that, a friend of mine as are many others are starting to scramble and stock pile meds.

    Corid is not on the "list". Only antibiotics that are used in water or food will need a prescription. If you saw a list that mentioned amprolium, it's because it's a product that has amprolium and an antibiotic.

    And fear not, you'll still be able to buy fish antibiotics, lol. Tylan is RX only now, but you can still get it on amazon. One of the powders that will not need a prescription is bacitracin.

    Buy a bag... the ones at the feed store I saw last week had an expiration date of 2018, and they're only $6.

    I heard that medicated feeds and any antibiotic used for livestock that is not an injection will be removed. Only injected antibiotics will be removed. As for the medicated feeds not sure if it's like chick feeds or if it's antibiotics in feeds. I've heard people say it and I've found a link to it. Here it is http://msue.anr.msu.edu/news/dont_wait_be_ready_new_antibiotic_rules_for_2017

    It's going to be so difficult for some poultry people. I hope that others vets will listen to other vets. Otherwise even when I become a vet I won't be much help other than saying what's wrong and how to treat it.
