I subscribe to a magazine entitled Survivalist. It's a good magazine overall. They also put out periodic emails alerting you to noteworthy sales or sources of preparedness supplies and equipment. This message below came in today and I thought I would post it just for the information of those who are interested in the subject.

Many of our readers have asked me WHERE/HOW to get antibiotics in
a post collapse situation, and I have to respond - "You Won't!"
However many medical professionals that are preppers recommend
getting and stocking up now on "Fish Antibiotics" since they do
not require a doctor's note and you can get them in any quantity.
Tom over at CampingSurvival.com just got in a huge shipment and
they are going fast... Here's your link to get yours before
they're gone and to learn more about them!
Tom also said that if you use the code "Survivalist" at checkout,
you'll get an additional 5% off anything you order(you can use it
to get more than just the fish antibiotics too).
Stocking up and getting them online will help eliminate the
suspicion when you walk into your local pet shop and ask for a
case of them, since they are shipped quietly from Tom's warehouse.
Here are a few FAQs about what they are and why you need them:
Q. What are fish antibiotics?
A.Fish antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections in fish.
The antibiotics that are used to treat fish are the same or
similar as the antibiotics that are provided for human use from
antibiotic manufacturing companies, depending on type of
antibiotic and form. Antibiotic tablets and capsules used for
ornamental and pet fish are the same as the antibiotics dispensed
from the local pharmacies for human use, except that they are
clearly labeled for fish use only, not for human consumption.
Q. If the antibiotics for fish are the same as the USP grade
antibiotics that are dispensed from human pharmacies then why are
should humans not take them also?
A. The law clearly states that any antibiotic for non-human use
needs to be labeled as "not for human use" regardless of
application. Thomas Labs sources it's antibiotics from the same
USP grade manufacturing as antibiotics used for humans, but we
are not doctor's and do not deal in human health problems. Only
a doctor can correctly prescribe antibiotics for specific need
Q. If your fish antibiotics are labeled "not for human use" does
that mean I can give them to my dog or cat, or other sick animal?
A. Thomas Labs makes antibiotics for fish. While it is true that
the antibiotics you may be prescribed at the veterinarians office
may be exactly the same as the antibiotics we make here for fish,
it is likely that if your animal is sick enough for antibiotics
then they should be under the care of a veterinarian.
These FAQs come directly from Tom's website where you can read
more for yourself. Be sure to get enough for you and your family
if you don't already have them. Remember that they can also be
used as a barter item too.
P.S. Remember, you can use Tom's code for anything on his site
through the end of the week, even if you already have a Antibiotics.
Tom has a huge catalog of survival gear that you need. Do me a
favor after you use your code and thank Tom through his website.
