    Terramycin Soluble Powder

    A water-soluble broad-spectrum antibiotic to be mixed with drinking water. Dosage for rabbits is 1/4 Teaspoon per 32-ounce water bottle, 5 - 10 days but not less than 5 days. The product is reported to be safe for use with young bunnies and helps alleviate certain bacterial respiratory and enteritis problems.(READ LABEL) It should be followed by triple acid pack or similar stomach remedy like Bene-Bac.

    I've seen the crumbles. It's made so you can mix it in the feed instead of water.

    I was reading that book a couple of weeks ago and was wondering about that.

    It basically suggests using the antibiotics as a preventative ie feeding them regularly. :shrug: Sounds a bit excessive to me - especially if you're wanting to use them for meat. Isn't that why we raise our own meat - so it's not full of drugs?
