Hey Finn,

Fellow northeast Texan here.

I'm researching right now on what meds I can obtain from pet sources. There are some pretty good options out there.

Amoxicilin, Keflex, and Tamiflu. Also, some serious pain meds are in order, morphine, oxicodone and Fentanyl. Quick clot is indespesible, but learn how to use it and follow the directions. Other than that, I'd make sure you have the standard CPR barrier mask and assortment of gauze, bandages and maxi-pads.

I've updated my kit to include hi-powered pain killers and some antibiotics.

Besides pain meds, broad spectrum anti-biotics- I also stock IMMODIUM- while it ain't fancy diarehea has killed a LOT of folks- dehydration. Also stock good antiseptics (Betadine) and some topical anesthetics (lidocaine). Some sterile saline for eyewashing is cheap.

If you get some of the the quick clot stuff, be sure to pay very close attention to the directions.

If you use the stuff while there is a small breeze, and you accidentally inhale some of it, you may kill yourself because of it's necrotic properties.

Try to get the quick clot pressure pads if possible. They are the best things to use to stop severe bleeding.

Isreali bandages (not really a medicine) are also great to have because of how easy one person can use them in self first-aid applications.

If there is a way to get standard IV fluid (i.e. the medical sugar water used to treat heat stoke) you should get some with a basic IV kit. Heat stoke, dehydration is very easy to get in the field, and something like a basic IV kit with fluids may save your life.
