Noticed tonight that I have a jug of Regu-mate, bottle of Naxcel, and a container of Estrumate in the refrigerator. I'm sure my pantry has some DMSO, biosponge, and other odds and ends, including staples of bute/banamine. The latter two get regular use and rotation, but how long do you keep the other stuff? Seriously, how long does a jug of Regu-mate last (as expensive as it is, I don't want to just toss it--but what is the expiration of such things)? (Perhaps there is an expiration date on it, but I guess I didn't note it.) Anyway, I thought it would be fun to have you all check YOUR refrigerators and pantries to see if the horse meds took more space than your OJ and canned beans.
wow. I'm surprised at all of the reserpine. Why would you keep it on hand for emergencies? As I understand it, it's more of a long-term tranquilizer, so wouldn't ace be more appropriate in emergency situations?
I guess I should have stated that some of this is leftover from another time where I used it (reserpine was from when my horse was on stall rest, for example). I just still have it on the off chance that his accident prone self breaks again and gets put back in a stall 24/7!
I had a really good clean out a couple of months ago (fridge broke terminally, so no choice ) and ditched a bunch of stuff, but I still have Adequan in there for horse use, and then there's the cat's megacolon meds, which are mostly human meds... Visitors must think one of us has the most horrible constipation issues.
The rest of my meds are in a designated cabinet in the laundry room.
