Using antibiotics responsibly, when they are needed, in the amount needed and under the supervision of a veterinarian will help to ensure greater animal health and welfare, provide a safe and secure food supply, and protect the important relationship we have with our pets.

 To help explain the use of antibiotics in animal health and to objectively outline their important role in ensuring animal health and welfare, we have created an animation entitled: ‘As little as possible, as much as necessary’. The issue of antimicrobial resistance is of concern for global health, and as the animation advises, we support the promotion of the responsible use of antibiotics in both animal and human health as the greatest way to ‘future proof’ them for next generations.
