Is It Safe For Humans To Use Animal Medicines?

Full story: News on 6 Tulsa

It may seem like a way to pinch pennies. Cutting out the middleman, the doctor in this case, and going to the feed story to self-prescribe antibiotics for an infection.

Hahaha. Why do they have the pic of frontline? Do people really put it on the back of their neck to keep away ticks and squitos?

LOL...that reminds me of this email I got some time back. You may have seen it:

The Purina Diet

One Saturday I was running errands for my wife. I had gone to Wal-Mart and was standing in line waiting to buy a large bag of Purina for my Labrador Retriever. A woman behind me looking at the bag, asked if I had a dog.
On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Purina Diet again, although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry & that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a tall guy behind her.

Horrified, she asked if I'd been poisoned and was that why I was in the hospital.

I said no.....I'd been sitting in the street licking my ba lls and a car hit me.

I thought the tall guy was going to have to be carried out the door.

Doctors always covering their buts, they will even tell you it is not healthy to be a naturepath and not to use herbal remidies. Its mostly a hoax because of the $$. I have used fish penicillin befoe and I stilldont have gills yet. Common Sense

Garlic is a natural antibiotic and so is honey. I cured myself of strep with a concoction of mashed garlic(clove or two), a tablespoon of honey and a dash of pepper sauce. Take it 3 times a day for a week. It doesn't taste that great but it worked. How cheap is that?

i go to the mexican store and purchase about 2 weeks of antibiotics in capsule form for about $20...i don't have insurance and cannot afford to go to a dr right now just to get a prescription...i mean $135 for a 5 minute office visit is rediculous to me...and to think all those years i had Aetna insurance and paid them $2500 a year and never got sick one time then as soon as we were laid off and lost the insurance i get sick...just my luck...
