Tylan Powder

Recommended Posts

I used the GT search to find info on those who have had Greys on Tylan powder. I saw where someone gets it from Amazon.


Checked it out and it's $43.50 for 100 grams.


Funny...the vet on call when Miles' bloodwork came in told me that she was going to order some of her 'favorite' antibiotic and it may take up to two weeks.


Funny thing is that she failed to tell me the name and that I could get it anywhere that sells farm supply or feedstores!


Her charge? $108 for the EXACT same thing. Even the same container!


Too bad I didn't know this first! :angryfire

I am sure that you know, but that stuff tastes rather nasty. Very bitter. When I was using it with my IBD grey, I put it into capsules so he could just swallow it down without tasting it. Some will tolerate it on their food, but no such luck for me. I, too, ordered it on line myself (the empty capsules, too) Good luck!

Frankly, I'd call your vet or drop by to see her and let her know -- calmly, firmly, NONconfrontationally -- that you are very disappointed that you were charged $108 for something that you can easily buy yourself for $43.50. And that while you appreciate the expertise and care her practice has shown toward your pet, Miles' illness has been very costly for you and you would appreciate being made aware of opportunities for saving.


All the while, of course, feeling like giving her a sharp smack with a rolled-up newspaper.
