Preparing Your Livestock Farm for the Loss of OTC Antimicrobials

May 3, 2023
7pm-8pm
Zoom

Preparing Your Livestock Farm for the Loss of OTC Antimicrobials

The need for the directives is to protect medically important microbials from the more rapid development of resistance. The loss of efficacy can occur with any drug, but care needs to be taken so we do not lose those products that are medically important for human health. With the elimination of OTC antimicrobials for livestock use, veterinary diagnosis is needed prior to treatment to ensure these products are used judiciously.
