Yes it promotes healing and it also helps with GERD (severe acid reflux). I just bought a box (for myself) of 50 150mg pills and it was $18.99...so basically it would be a 10 supply for 20 bucks...im not sure how much medication is for horses but it seems spendy (60 bucks a month???)
That is interesting though... I knew older farmers that would use penicillen (cant spell lol...) on themselves from the animal bottle. It would save them a doctor bill.
