We are going to talk about fish antibiotics and the possible uses in a collapsed society when there are no other options.
There’s a lot of information out there about storing fish antibiotics for survival stockpiles but how much of it is really true? Can you really get the same antibiotics that are prescribed without getting an actual prescription?
The answer is a resounding YES! Fish antibiotics are an essential prep to have in your stockpile. The best news is they aren’t expensive and can easily be purchased over the counter.
As wonderful as this news is, there is some caution that absolutely must be taken (also, see our disclaimer).
You can’t just buy these pills and consider yourself taken care of. You need to learn about them, what they treat, doses, and other very pertinent information. You can cause far more harm than good by giving the wrong kind of antibiotic or the wrong dose. There is also the consideration of side effects, depending on an individual’s health.
The Average First Aid Kit
One thing we know for certain, the average first aid kit just don’t cut it. There will be infections and in the SHTF and people are going to need antibiotics to survive those infections. Doctors disappear in a collapse and so too do the truckloads of meds being shipped into your city or town.
If nothing else you need a backup plan. There are natural antibiotics but when its all on the line you are going to want to turn to the meds that have saved people for years. The miracle of modern medicine is why mortality rates are but a shadow of what it once was.
