Alton’s Antibiotics and Infectious Disease is meant to serve as a guide, in plain English, to assist the medically-prepared individual in their role as medic in disaster, remote, or other austere settings. Based on the Altons’ original writings on both common and epidemic diseases and the use of aquarium and avian antibiotics to treat them, this book is an essential aid to those who find themselves in situations where modern medical systems do not exist.
These situations require the medic to serve as the end of the line with regards to their family’s health off the grid. Homesteaders, outdoorsmen, medical missionaries, and those in the preparedness community will find “Alton’s Antibiotics and Infectious Disease” an indispensable diagnostic and therapeutic tool in circumstances where the ambulance in not just around the corner and the rescue helicopter not just over the horizon.

This is a guide to using human equivalent veterinary medications in emergency and austere settings when the doctor and hospitals are out of service for the long term. There are a limited number of these antibiotics known to be in the same doses and available OTC for future emergency use. Our book covers the names of these antibiotics and how to use them safely in dire emergencies when medical help is just not available. We discuss common and uncommon infectious diseases these veterinary antibiotics can help.

This book is very expensive to ship to Canada, Amazon in Canada does sell it (Amazon is our publisher).

    You're not going to learn this elsewhere

    Posted by Willard A Edison on 2nd Oct 2019

    I've always felt that Dr. Bones and nurse Amy are way ahead of the curve for medical preparedness.This book is invaluable. I bought 3, 1 for me and one for each of our children (adults). I also lay up a supply of fish antibiotics in a spare refrigerator. I date them so I know what is the freshest. Great job you two!

    One of the top three books you will need.

    Posted by Jim Costa on 9th Sep 2019

    We have a 50 person survival group completed. Our Health team consists of two RN's and a Pharmacist. We discovered Fish Antibiotics early and thought we were finished. As an afterthought I purchased Alton's Antibiotics book. The medical crew raved as it covered many things their clean industrial medical practices never prepared them for - a grid down isolated health practice. The book is in plain layman's terms so you don't need to have a medical background to use it. It is a hands on cookbook for survival health.

    Must have book for your prepper library

    Posted by Mike Lewis on 16th Jan 2019

    This book is outstanding. It explains a complicated and intimidating subject matter (Antibiotics and Infectious Disease) in easy to understand and well written format. It is a MUST HAVE for any serious prepper library. This book will make you re-evaluate your priorities when it comes to being prepared for the uncertain future. I read it cover to cover in just a few days and am already implementing what I have learned in to my disaster plan. Well done Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy!

    Great Resource

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2018

    I would have rated it a five star but there wasn’t mention of recommended types of antibiotic and amounts that someone should have on hand for an unthinkable event. I know everyone and situation is different but out of all the antibiotics listed which ones should I concentrate on stockpiling? Still a great resource and I think every home medic should have this in their library Hi Jay! Nurse Amy here. We appreciate the kind words! A list of exactly what and how much to buy in a priority list is nearly impossible. The factors that influence your situation are numerous. We can provide help with how to use them in dire emergencies, but we cannot predict what may happen during that time ie. how much you should have had. It is a good idea for an article, but any suggestions we may provide are simply our best guesses. We don't like to "guess", which is why we did not put any numbers of doses to buy in the book. I hope you understand the predicament we are in. Thank you again, Nurse Amy :-)
