Title: Book with information on veterinary medicines for human use
Post by: Asclepius on June 09, 2010, 12:35:58 AM
I just read a book called Survivalist's Medicine Chest, which has general information about which veterinary medicines may be safe for human use. The author states he obtained his knowledge as a veterinarian who provided medical care to people in Africa with veterinary medicines and techniques.

The book provides overal information and warnings about the medications and refers you to the PDR or another drug reference book for dosing. I really would like to cross reference the info from this book with at least two other credible sources. Does anyone know of any other books or credible sources for information about veterinary medication use in humans?
