    Usually its terrimyacin (or however you spell it) that TSC sells for the treatment of these things ,but now its the other, and coccidiosis isnt listed as one of the actual conditions it treats- however when i slueth around on the net about it it seems like its an acceptable substitute...

    does anyone know?

    Not sure about tetracycline, thought that was more for respiratory. I would use corid or sulmet for cocci.

    I looked it up online, apparently it IS for respritory, but the the family of antibiotics and anti-wahtever it is, works the same for the cocci.

    No one around here carries the other, i'd have to mail order it if i wanted it. I'll give this a day or two and see how it goes... thanks guys.
