You know the answer, then.

A kennel cough diagnosis gets you ~60 doxycycline and a handful of hydrocodone. That solves ~95% of all life's problems right there, with minimal wait times and is very affordable sans insurance.

Y'all are welcome.

Trivial question for US members: Is Amoxycilin easily available in the States without a Doctor's or Vet's* prescription? In the UK and much of Europe, it's prescription only. It used to be over the counter in Spanish pharmacies.

Oh. The secret: I like to keep a stash of useful medicines and I'm low on antibiotics.

* I understand you can buy amoxycillin for aquarium fish and it's the same product that humans use at greater expense.
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

I took my doodle to the vet for a persistent cough and got sixty pills for him. It doesn't say on the label what they are, and no marks on the bills themselves. No idea what they are. It just says Cough Tablet #50045

Find a quack and force the pill down his gullet, if the quack survives you
can safely administer it to your dog.

AFAIK its just prescription in the US. Too many people would take it every time they have a sore throat and before long we'd have even more problems with antibiotics that no longer work than we already do.

That said, you can buy it from offshore pharmacy's, or at least one I know of. But while I do get things in the US I don't know if you'd have trouble in your side of the pond.

I think you need a vet prescription, but I have heard antibiotics can be gotten without one. I did notice a website selling generic Viagra for dogs in 100 mg tabs. I bet there is a trick to that lol.

Yes amoxycillin is prescription only in the US.

You can probably get enough antibiotics just eating our pork or chicken.

In the UK, we can buy some prescription drugs such as antibiotic creams and Viagra* etc from UK based pharmacies over the internet. But not amoxycillin and similar. You do an online consultation with one of their doctors basically describing the symptoms and promising to read the instructions. It's a bit expensive, but avoids the pesky visit to your own doctor.
One thing about the internet pharmacy route is that I can buy more than one course of treatment at a time. E.g. My own doc might prescribe one 30g tube of prescription only, antibiotic skin cream but I could order 6 tubes from the internet pharmacy at the same time.

LOL. 100mg would give the average sized dog one hell of a boner. Poor soul wouldn't know what was going on. Human dosage is 25mg to 100mg max.
