    where can i find Epinephrine ? i've looked on jeffers, hoeggers, caprine, and a few others and cant seem to find any,

    i'm making my list of things to buy which include;


    more CD/T
    CD Antitoxin
    Ivomec
    Valbazen
    Pritchard Teats
    possibly a leather show lead
    possibly a breeding harness
    oh, and electrolytes.

    See anything i should get? i have probios, nutridrench, syringes, needles, drench gun, therm., selenium -vit e paste, fortified vit b, bloat release. and a few i'm forgetting.....I need things in advance because it takes forever to get here, doesnt really help in emergencies.

    anyone try ordering of VetServe? has it worked well?
    thanks everyone!!!! :)

    Only place you will get epinephrine is from a vet or Vet-serve because is is RX. That's where I ordered mine from. I think they price gouge and get you on shipping too (charged me $15 to ship from Apex NC to Newport NC) Other than that they're convenient. Since they do get you on shipping its a good idea to put a big order in. I know some people who go in together for orders. I went ahead and got Muse, Epinephrine, B12 and Comforsit pills for my dogs when I ordered.

    For electrolytes I really recommend Sav-a-caf. You get electrolytes and probiotics in one. My show doe this year grew up on it and she's never had any health issues. Jeffers was out of Sav-a-caf when I tried to order it last time so I'm experimenting with Revitalyte right now.

    Vetserv was very easy to order from and shipping was cheap. $3!

    You can only get epi via prescription or vetserv. Dose is 1cc per 100 pounds sq so make sure you have some tuberculin syringes available so you can give the right dose.

    vet serv only lets you get a single does -- or thats how they "advertize" it. How do you change the syringe type?

    I can get insulin needles from my aunt (cousin has diabetes)

    A tuberculin syringe is just a smaller syringe. It only holds 1cc. It is much more accurate when you are giving .1, .5, ect doses.

    An insulin syringe would work to, but I think it holds even less...

    As far as having things on hand for emergencies goes, I like to have bottles of RX stuff from my vet such as Nuflor, Banamine, Norcalciphos, Thiamin, liquid sulfa, diarsanyl and BoSe. From the mail order OTC places propylene glycol, chlorhexadine, vetwrap, Biomycin and C&D antitoxin.

    :doh: okay maybe i could have answered that! lol.

    I have my friends bringing over some Bo-se - for that buck kid...he looks the SAME from when he was two days old. he's really scaring me, he's eating and all that but hasnt grown at all. the doe is probably 20 pounds, she's big. and he needs to be at least 55 pounds in 7 months, for market. :worried:
