Responsible Use of Antimicrobials in Veterinary Practice: the 7-point plan

RUMA Alliance member BVA (British Veterinary Association) has issued guidance on the responsible use of antimicrobials – a poster for display about the responsible use of antimicrobials in veterinary practice.

Antimicrobials are essential for the treatment and prevention of the spread of infectious and zoonotic bacterial diseases in both animals and humans.

  • Every use increases the risk of selection for resistant bacteria
  • Responsible use optimises therapeutic effects while minimising the risk of selection for resistant bacteria
  • Responsible use — correct antimicrobial: as little as possible, as much as necessary
