PART 2: Sourcing antibiotics for storing in case the SHTF

Original Article


In Part 1 I discussed the availability of Vet Antibiotics on Amazon.com and also presented a recommended “shopping list”. In this segment a source for “meant for human consumption” antibiotics is considered.
I have been unable to find what I would be considered absolute factual information that leads me to believe that antibiotics meant for animal/fish use are EXACTLY the same as those prescribed for humans. With that said – I personally would not hesitate to use vet antibiotics if it was necessary. Some people would.


I had a loyal reader whose opinion I value greatly contact me and recommend the website SurvivingHealthy.com . SurvivingHealthy.com offers services and products related to legally obtaining antibiotics meant for humans.

SurvivingHealthy.com offers several “antibiotic survival packs” legally. How is this done?  A real doctor reviews your medical history and prescribes the antibiotics for you. The medication is shipped directly to your door along with information on dosage and when to use.

I contacted Dr. Bob at SurvivingHealthy.com and told him that I was writing this post – and was going to be comparing the options of obtaining vet antibiotics versus human. I asked for his opinion. Dr. Bob responded quickly and stated that he believes there are some advantages to using the services which SurvivingHealthy provides – such as reliability, cost, and information. He did not really have any comments regarding whether vet antibiotics were safe to consume – however he did state that all med’s obtained through his services were FDA approved.

The “information” part of the service which SurvivingHealthy.com offers is extremely important to me. Dr. bob stated that he “put together an entire guideline for use with our meds, with the TEOTWAWKI recommendations included for real post-world use.” To me – this is excellent as I am not a doctor or have any knowledge of what antibiotics to take for what situations and in what amounts.
Let’s take a look at a couple of the offerings available:
  • Basic – Includes complete treatment for multiple infections with complete instructions included. Antibiotics included: penicillin, amoxicillin, doxycycline, cephalexin, sulfa.
  • Deluxe  – Includes complete treatment for multiple infections with complete instructions included.  Includes basic pack PLUS amoxicillin/clavulanate (generic Augmentin), azithromycin (generic Zithromax), and levofloxacin (generic Levaquin) ONLY FOR THOSE WITH NO ANTIBIOTIC ALLERGIES! 
Regardless of one’s own belief concerning the ability to safely consume vet antibiotics - SurvivingHealthy.com certainly provides a best-case option for obtaining FDA approved “meant for human consumption” antibiotics.

There are other services and sources for human-use antibiotics – however SurvivingHealthy.com is one which I am most familiar.

More to come in Part 3.
