    I'm not sure if it's a prescription only, got given a bottle of it a couple of years ago from a farmer which had surplus, my terrier gets conjunctivitis and was trying to get a couple of bottles as we use it at the kennels as well and there isn't much left.
    is the Terramycin powder any good?

    Aureomycin powder was discontinued a number of years ago. Not particularly nice filling animals eyes with powder. There are many licensed veterinary medicines for that purpose that work very well.

    Importing medicines from abroad is illegal. Ebay are breaking the law offering them for sale. I have reported the items to ebay. Recently got a number of items taken down from Amazon.

    ALL antibiotics for animal treatment are prescription only. If your dog has an eye infection it should be seen by a vet.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Daven- if -and its a mighty big IF - such purchases come with a guarantee that you get what you are paying for. That's one thing. The percentage of such purchases that transpire to be fake drugs is proper scary. But regardless, as Apache states, it's illegal. Someone may or may not agree with something, but illegal is illegal - there's no middle ground.

    Apache is big enough - and I know from experience definitely ugly enough ( ) to stand up for himself. But I respectfully suggest your post above is a little adversarial within context?

    So what if someone was selling stolen goods? Child pornography? etc?

    Simple fact is these are medicines. Medicines are categorised based on risk of harm and consequences of misuse. I'm sure I don't need to lecture most of you about the growing threat of antibiotic resistance and appropriate use, but it's a real and genuine threat. Equally much of the time you may well 'get away' with stuffing some eye ointment into the eye for a day or two, but some conditions will be made worse, more serious issues will be missed and animals will suffer.

    So purchasing medicines from abroad is against the law, you don't know what you are getting and may cause harm or suffering to your animal without the proper treatment, that the Animal Welfare Act 2006 makes it a criminal offence for you to withhold.

    I'd much rather educate you guys on why it's not OK. How would it look with my professional body if I turned a blind eye to such things once I was made aware of them? Someone who is not a client buying illegal medicines from abroad will have no impact on my business. Might not be good for your dog.

    Do you see why I care?
