I received this email from the place I bought my fish antibiotics.greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread
I have never been an alarmist so until this moment I have never emailed you for solicitation of more of your business.
However, the last two orders we have placed for the fish antibiotics (Fish Mox, cillin, etc) we have been put on backorder due to short supply.
I don't know exactly what this means but I have put in a large order that is now here and if you are interested in restocking your supply......this may be the time to do so.
Here is a link to their web site. Http://www.lambriarvet.com

It's odd that there is a short supply. I wonder if the chemical plants are having trouble with producing the raw material that make antibiotics, animal or human?

Between the folks on our spread we purchased about $300 worth of stuff from them. Our last order (week ago) was short the 2 tubes of terramycin otic ointmment which they said they've had a devil of a time getting. Can't think of any good reason for a shortage this time of year unless folks like us are buying it all up....
