Well I had a hacking cough and felt like bronchitis coming on. Took the dog's antibiotics, wife used to be a pharmacy tech, can't tell you what type but it worked good. This is what I call a little known provision of the "Affordable Care Act".

It's cheaper to go see the vet. WOOF WOOF
My wife has to explain how her poodle weighs 220lbs and definantly doesn't want to be neutered

Anyone know how or where I can get Lidocaine (2%) without a prescription?
(To be used to numb skin before suturing.)
I couldn't find it anywhere, but I did find a Doom and Bloom blog post about using injectable benadryl as a replacement for lidocaine. Injectable benadryl is available from Allivet, but it's not clear to me if it requires a prescription.

I also found an article about making lidocaine solution from the powdered form but, again, it requires a prescirption. I did find powdered benzocaine on Amazon.

I'm assuming you mean injectable rather than topical?
Go to Mexico. There is a 3%, injectable solution that is available over the counter. Getting it back here is your problem. But your chances of success are well above 90% if you stick only with the lidocaine.

I had a source, they'd ship inj. lidocaine and many IV fluids without a medical license or prescription. Just placed a new order with them since mine is about a year past expiration, if the order ships I'll provide the details.

I also found an article about making lidocaine solution from the powdered form but, again, it requires a prescirption.
I'm familiar with those instructions, everything is available without a prescription but there's lots of drawbacks/concerns - cost of supplies, sterility, very short shelf life of the solution once mixed, and the question of the purity of the lidocaine powder from places like "lidocaineforless" or "medicalnumbingagents". Last resort use only IMO, but very educational in terms of learning the basics of pharmaceutical compounding.

Oh, believe me, I know that everything's available from somewhere. Just in the half hour or so that I looked for it last night, I couldn't find any place that offered it that I would even chance buying from. I found one site that offered Viagra or Cialis as a bonus with purchase. Maybe that sounds great to guys, but it seemed sketchy to me.

Chemical supply companies, Sigma Aldrich, Spectrum Chemical, etc. USP grade, but very expensive considering a 50mL vial of 2% inj. lidocaine goes for $5-6. My order from this morning shows "complete", but no shipping notice yet. If it goes through I'll post the link.
