I can't believe it was 55.00 for tetracycline. I just use terramycin (med is oxytetracycline) which is a water soluble livestock antibiotic, which is 5.00 or so at a livestock store. I have experience doing home medicating with my livestock, however.
If you must continue going to that vet, go back with printed info on the meds and the usefulness of the combination. Tell her that they apparently don't know how to treat rodents, and that you will not pay for useless services rendered. I've had to tell vets off before... Just because they're vets doesn't mean they know what they're talking about automatically. It's up to us owners to know common diseases and their treatments. I won't even start about my horrible ex-livestock vet... lol.
