Can you please tell me if you are able to add flavoring such as banana, cherry, tangerine, etc, to the Doxycycline for birds when you compound it or is it just unflavored Doxycycline that you currently sell?

Thank you very much!

Answer: 
Doxycycline is the generic. Although they are both antibiotics in the same drug class, doxycycline is not the same as tetracycline.
