Depending on the circumstances, fish antibiotics could be a big part of your preparedness plans. It’s important to note though if you plan on having or using antibiotics, you need to understand when they will work, the damage they can do, and the correct dosage.

Antibiotics have played a major role in battling life threatening infections over the past century, but the over usage of antibiotics today or miss usage of antibiotics can cause them to be ineffective.
These days our doctors have the equipment and knowledge to figure out what the best possible antibiotic might be. In a SHTF scenario, fish antibiotics might be our only option.
