I’ve received a LOT of questions lately as to the notion of using fish antibiotics (fish mox) for human use as well as livestock antibiotics and other livestock medicine for human use—of course not for everyday, but certainly in an effort to be medically self-reliant if an “end of the world as we know it” scenario occurs. The short answer to these queries is NO, livestock medicines are not fit for human use and YES, fish antibiotics certainly are acceptable for human use. So…go fish.
There’s no such thing as a manufacturer of fish antibiotics. There’s not a pharmaceutical company on the planet that has yet provided valuable real estate space just so that they can manufacture “fish drugs” vs. “human drugs.” So the pharmaceutical industry—never weary of making a couple extra bucks—has convinced the aquatic pet industry to just use the same antibiotics as us big humans do. Yup, fish antibiotics or aquarium antibiotics are the exact same as the antibiotics you and I might get for a sinus infection. Are they really EXACTLY the same? Yes.
