    DefaultBoric Acid?

    I can't find the boric acid for the purple stuff ear wash. I've looked in the first aid section with no luck. And every time I ask, I get sent to the bug/roach section?? I can't imagine putting stuff for roaches in my dog's ears??? Where can I find this ?

    I think we used to get it at the drug store. I just buy the purple stuff.

    I buy it at the drug store in the first aid section. I bought it at Rite-Aid the last time I needed it. I always have trouble finding the Gentian Violet, but never the boric acid.

    Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

    I thought the Gentian violet would give me the trouble, but that was easy. The package says "boric acid" on it? Box, bag, container?

    It is a powder, and comes in a bottle like this. I think it was 6oz. or so.

    I had to go to 5 stores to find the boric acid. I found mine at Rite-Aid, too. I would call around to the pharmacies and ask.

    My vet actually just made this for me today...I made it myself years ago and I remember thinking there were some odd ingredients that I wasn't 100% sure about
