At SHTF Preparedness, we are not medical professionals, we do not staff any or have any writers who are either. We can not give legitimate medical advice or diagnose anything. We are going to talk about fish antibiotics and the possible uses in a collapsed society when there are no other options, but do your own research before using them.
What You Should Know About Fish Antibiotics
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. 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 won’t cut it. There will be infections and if the SHTF, 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 it’s 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.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
