Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q. What are fish antibiotics?
A. Fish antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections in fish. The antibiotics that are used to treat fish are the same or similar as the antibiotics that are provided for human use from antibiotic manufacturing companies, depending on type of antibiotic and form.
Q. If the antibiotics for fish are the same as the USP grade antibiotics that are dispensed from human pharmacies then why are should humans not take them also?
A. The law clearly states that any antibiotic for non-human use needs to be labeled as “not for human use” regardless of application. Aquatic MedLabs sources it’s antibiotics from the same USP grade manufacturing as antibiotics used for humans, but we are not doctor’s and do not deal in human health problems. Only a doctor can correctly prescribe antibiotics for specific need in humans. Aquatic MedLabs will take no responsibility in the misuse of these products made for animals. If a human is sick and needs antibiotics, then it is likely that person also needs the expertise and guidance of a doctor.
Q. If your fish antibiotics are labeled “not for human use” does that mean I can give them to my dog or cat, or another sick animal?
A. Aquatic MedLabs makes antibiotics for fish. While it is true that the antibiotics you may be prescribed at the veterinarians’ office may be exactly the same as the antibiotics we make here for fish, it is likely that if your animal is sick enough for antibiotics then they should be under the care of a veterinarian. Aquatic MedLabs makes no claim to the efficiency or application of our antibiotics in any other animal besides fish, and takes no responsibility in the misuse of its products made for fish when used in other animals or humans.
