FishMox is amoxicillin. I think you're talking about Fish Doxy lol. I just checked the price of "Fish Doxy". $150 for 100 (100mg) tablets. It sure has gone up since I last checked.
I have had some dogs that refuse to take a pill, especially if they are sick or convalescent. I have a large 25cc syringe. I will take the antibiotic capsule, separate it and empty the contents into the syringe along with something sweet (maple syrup and water works well) and squirt it down their throat. That way I know they got most of a full dose.
If they refuse it you aren't doing it right!
Funny you posted this Bruce just last week my daughter was prescribed doxy for a sinus infection. The Dr first was gonna give her a z-pac but with her heart meds there is a drug interaction so she can't take it. I was surprised they gave her doxy instead of amoxicillin, it's way cheaper.
