Here are some of the things that you need to know if you are considering adding fish antibiotics to your disaster kit.
When making a bug-out bag one of the emergency essentials that a lot of survivalists and preppers want to include is some antibiotics. The big problem is that it takes a prescription from a doctor to get these, and most doctors won’t write a prescription to somebody who is going to store them for an emergency scenario.
Fortunately there are some methods that will allow you to buy some of the most common antibiotics for your bug out bag. These are the same types that are prescribed by the doctor; you just don’t need a prescription to buy them with these methods.
The first method involves buying the antibiotics online from a foreign country. Most pharmacies located in a foreign country are willing to sell drugs and ship them as long as the drugs are legal to sell in the foreign country. There are a few problems with buying drugs from a foreign county such as the quality of the antibiotics, and counterfeit drugs.
Because of these problems it could be safer to buy antibiotics that are designed for pets. Fish antibiotics are identical to those used to treat humans, and the dosages are basically the same for both humans and fish.
The number of pills per bottle range from 30 to 100 pills, and they tend to be a lot cheaper then the pills designed for human consumption. Even though some of them could be counterfeit, the chances are highly unlikely since drugs made for human use are far more profitable for the counterfeiters to sell.
There are several kinds of fish antibiotics that you could add to your emergency essential kit:
FISH ANTIBIOTIC COMMON NAME DOSEAGE
FISH-MOX FORTE Amoxicillin 500mg
FISH-CILLIN Ampicillin 250mg
FISH-FLEX FORTE Keflex 500mg
FISH-ZOLE Metronidazole 250mg
FISH-PEN FORTE Penicillin 500mg
FISH-CYCLINE Tetracycline 250mg
There are also some common bird antibiotics that you can buy and add to your survival kits:
BIRD ANTIBIOTIC COMMON NAME DOSEAGE
BIRD-BIOTIC doxycycline 100mg
BIRD-SULFA sulfamethoxazole 400mg/trimethoprim 80mg
If you decide to add these to your bug-out bag you should also add a book that will explain what the different drugs are for and what the side effects will be. You should also know what you can and can’t eat while you are taking these medications to avoid dangerous interactions. Also remember to keep a close eye on the expiration dates since most loose their effectiveness with time, and a few such as tetracycline can become dangerous past the expiration date.
Antibiotics are an important survival item to have available in your bug-out bag for prolonged catastrophes. Having said that, the antibiotics must be used only when they are needed in order to prevent the bacteria from developing a resistance to the antibiotics that are being used. Learning the differences among the various antibiotic families, understanding the side effects they could have on the human body and knowing which medications would be better for particular health conditions will allow you to make the best choice when you buy them.
