Yeah that. It's something that starts with an A, but the name escapes me.
And I don't feed medicated food. Dumor feed from TSC isn't medicated, but at the same time TSC is really big on recommending antibiotics in the chick's water. Strange.
It's a personal choice. Risk vs. benefit I guess, and it depends on how big of a risk you think it is and if YOU are willing to "risk it"
I get non-medicated feed from TSC, and I don't use abx on healthy pets.
