If the antibiotics are going to be too slow to ship you can try to find something else locally.. they don't have as high a likelihood to work in my experience but it may be better than waiting weeks for meds to ship..depending on how fast you marked for shipping. Furan 2 has a some potential and as does a source of Erythromycin.
Yup, he's in 3 tsp of epsom salts/gallon now, I did bring it up to that level fairly slowly.
I did get somewhat expedited shipping on the meds, my order should be here in 5 biz days at the latest- it's been marked as shipped, but the tracking # hasn't shown up in the system yet, so I don't know exactly when it will be here. I'm going by way of the pet store on Wednesday and if it looks like my order will be much later than that, I can check to see if they have Furan 2. Thanks for the tip!
