Ipecac Syrup - where can I buy it? Brand
You recommend the above to keep in your first aid box as emetic for poisoning. Where can I get it? (My Chemist only has the Ipeka...tonic from Lennon and is not very helpful).
This syrup is also mentioned as first aid for cats/dogs with aldicarb/Telmik poisoning. I also found a recipe to make the syrup with Ipecac powder, but cannot find this either (healthstores and all...)
