Antibiotic flake is one of my favorite additions to my personal food mix. I always make sure that I have added at least 1 pound after fully scrunching it up to match the size of my fish. It makes for an excellent addition.
Hi Tom, we're glad to like it, but be careful about feeding it on a regular basis. It is only good for treating specific bacterial illnesses and should not be used with healthy fish. If you do, it could backfire, creating even stronger bacteria that become resistant to antibiotics.
I have a hen that has had bumble foot for months. Many rounds of other antibiotics, debridements and foot care, nothing seemed to work. The bumbles on her foot grew so large like the size of marbles. She is healthy otherwise, laying well and not limping so I kept up with the care. Luckily I read Laura Cole’s blog about the medicated fish flakes. I ordered the product and hoped for the best. It did take a couple of weeks before the bumbles started to shrink. So happy I found this product!
My fish devour this food. Just wished I could get my kids to like taking medicine this much!
I read about this on a website about birds it was recommended for bumble foot so I’m trying it
It’s a great idea so far my goose isn’t to interested in it
The red antibiotic flake was liked immediately by both of my sick bettas one with dropsy, . The metroplex antiprotozoan one they didn't like but would take a bite if I soaked the flake first in seachem garlic guard.
