cheapest and best option is animal penicillin

Made at same place in same vat, labeled and billed differently cost wise.

Most people dont want to hear or practice that!

I trust you !
so, I go to TSC and get outta the locked display,
penicillin - what do you think my LLMD is going to say (:
I gave this to cattle back in the day, it was to treat those huge flies that bore into them..
Life's great..
I appreaicate the thought, but, I don't think I have big enough chawhootas for that..
but, I am a man and I will change if I have to
ha ha ha [spinning smile]
will, look at the pricing soon and get with ya...

Animal Bicillin is cheaper but the conversion dosage over to medical grade, you'd still have to buy 4 or 5 at 10 bucks a pop to equal 1.2 million units.

My doc says Mexico is best option too. I'd do it, if anyone knows specifics..PLEASE pm me..

I used animal bicillin it was the same as the human stuf. 14 months at two shots a week I gave myself over 140 shots.

The lyme was gone for one year then came back.I even posted here that I was cured. My count droped a lot during that time,but not enough.

Mabey two years would have cured me ??????????

First off...

Bicillin is a tradename for Penicillin G Benzathine.

Most all "Penicillin" found at Farm supply stores is different, Penicillin G Procaine.

Some veterinary forms you CAN get Penicillin G Benzathine combined with Penicillin G Procaine. Problem is, one would have to take so much quantity to get the needed dose of the Penicillin G Benzathine, it is unpractical.

I have not found a veterinary source for pure Penicillin G Benzathine (and I have a farm, so it's not out of place if I ask a supplier).

That being said, probably the vet forms better then nothing, but It never got me past relapsing 4 or 5 years ago before I was under treatment protocal by an LLMD, and had no other choice other then to self-treat.
