    does Bactrim need to be refrigerated?

    My vet prescribed Bactrim for Willow and I was wondering if it needs to be refrigerated. It's also called sulfa/trimeth. It's a pink liquid antibiotic. It doesn't say to refrigerate it on the label and when I called the vet the receptionist said that if it needed to be it would say to. I just wanted to check and make sure though since I didn't speak with the vet.

    No. It needs to be stored at room temperature.

    Good to know it's a sulfa med. If my piggies ever have to have it, then I have to put my hubby to work so I don't get hives.

    No refrigeration needed...It's a suspension so you just need to shake it up before you use it each time.
