So stupid. And you basically have to get fingerprinted to buy Sudafed (the good kind).

Hm. I was wondering why most petcos didn't sell medication anymore. It seemed like one day the shelves were full of fish meds and the next day the selves were empty. But you would think they would just make people show ID and buy it from behind a counter. Can flea and tick medications still be sold from behind a locked case because the FDA does monitor those drugs? If not, I don't see why fish meds can't be sold the same way. : /

thats insane but sadly, it doesnt surprise me... apparently some of the livestock supply chain stores wont carry some brands and kinds of horse wormer for the same reason, and all livestock and pet wormer, medication, insecticide in those stores is behind lock and key... pain in the @$$ for the people that arent doing anything but trying to care for their pets...

My understanding of the reason behind a lot of the products being pulled was due to overuse and abuse related to the fish themselves that was creating resistant pathogen/bacteria, allergic reaction with some hobbyist, improper disposal that had a negative impact on the environment/ecosystem and hobbyist using it for themselves for antibiotics....I have not heard of illegal use to get high......this was an article I read in one of the aquarium magazine on petsmart and petco that was going to stop selling all but the natural products/environment can still get it online...Dr Foster and Smith still sells just about everything......

I can still get just about any product/medication/wormer/flea/tick/antibiotic at my local feed store and a lot at Wal Mart too......
