Antibiotic Duo Pellets combine two popular antibiotics to provide a broad spectrum tratment against both gram positive and gram negative infections.  Contains a full dose of erythromycin and doxycycline hyclate.  This combination has been shown to be more effective that with treating each drug on its own.
