Does anyone know the veterinary names of antibiotics that would be effective against anthrax?

I'd like to state again something I already said in an earlier thread: According to my first wife, who is a damned good veterinarian and also a biochemist, veterinary drugs ARE NOT made to the standards of drugs for human treatment. In addition, the pills and capsule forms are not made to the same standard dosage sizes as the ones for human use. Are you qualified to accurately diagnose whether or not you even have anthrax? Do you know whether or not you (or the people you may also treat) are allergic to the commonly used antibiotics? Do you know what the best course of treatment is for the antibiotics that people here may tell you are the accepted ones? Indiscriminate use of antibiotics is what has created antibiotic-resistant germs. Don't contribute to that.

additionally, for inhalation anthrax, IV antibiotics are required and even then, fatality rates are high.

Actually po Cipro or Levaquin may work for the pulmonary disease if taken at exposure.And it is better than not taking anything. cpermd
