Responsible Antibiotic Usage
Like humans, animals sometimes get sick and need treatment. Reducing the incidence of disease and minimising the spread of infection to other animals is key to improving overall animal health and reducing the need for antibiotic treatments.
Although some alternative treatment options may be available, it is sometimes necessary to treat animals with antibiotics. When antibiotic therapy is required, it is important to carefully consider the most effective and responsible antibiotic treatment protocols to limit the influence on antibiotic resistance selection and/or spread.
