Yep, free exchange of information is definitely a terrible thing. It's why we have terrorism, school shootings, and... democracy. And if Debbie D. hadn't written her article, it would never cross the resourceful person's mind to google "generic baytril," "10% baytril dosage," and "medication dosage calculation."
$53.50 was my last Baytril bill, for 2 weeks supply. For that price, I can buy it myself. They also mixed up all of the rat's dosages, and gave me an inadequate amount so I had to go back, point out their mistake, and get another bottle for yet more money.
So when the vet says, "Your rat's lungs are permanently damaged due to pneumonia, so she will need to be on baytril & doxy for the rest of her life to fight mycoplasma," do you spend all of your rat health fund on the vet's overpriced baytril & doxy? No, you find a cheaper source, so that when another rat gets a tumor, has an infection, etc. you can afford to give them the health care they deserve.
