A Veterinarian’s Perspective on Prepper Medicine

A veterinarian’s perspective on prepper medicine on ailments and the antibiotics that help cure them. A lot of info on antibiotics and how to use them, when to use them and when to use something different. Survival Blog shares this and more info.

I personally, use herbal medicine first but if my life is hanging in the balance I will use  antibiotics especially in a disaster situation or an economic collapse when my state of health could determine my ability  to be an asset to my family’s safety.

Preparing for all medical possibilities is impossible but taking no action at all is living in a state of denial that could endanger yourself and other family members.

Antibiotics don’t change to poison the day after they expire.  It has been proven that antibiotics are safe to use for at least five (5) years beyond their expiration date.  Don’t throw away expired antibiotics or other medications for that matter.

If you need a prescription, you might confide with your family doctor and tell him/her your concerns about preparing for all possibilities.  There are legal ramifications in the good old litigious USA, but if you’re lucky you’ll have a doc with common sense.  It would also be wise to read the antibiotic inserts (also available online at www.drugs.com ) and familiarize yourself with what they’re used for, side effects, and dosages for various problems.  The dosages listed above are “shotgun” amounts, or highest levels.
