Antibiotics are as crucial in preventing and treating disease in animals as they are in people.
These medicines are a cornerstone of a veterinarian’s toolbox because they are currently the only way to cure bacterial disease. Without them, animals can suffer and even die at the hands of painful diseases like anthrax or pneumonia, making antibiotics essential to animal welfare.
Its why veterinary professionals work to preserve these medicines for the future by reducing the need for antibiotics in the first place. This means protecting animals from the threat of disease, diagnosing health issues earlier and treating them quickly and responsibly.
This helps ensure antibiotics retain their effectiveness and can continue to offer an invaluable benefit to animals and people well into the future.
