The animal health industry is committed to protecting the health of all animals and people by producing safe products and ensuring they are used responsibly. We work with governments, the medical community, and leading scientists to reduce the threat of antibiotic resistance by reducing the need for antibiotics in the first place. This means focusing on prevention, early detection, and more efficient treatments such as vaccines. We take steps to ensure that when antibiotics are used, they are used responsibly. Everyone can do their part – and it’s important that pet owners and animal lovers understand the basics of responsible antibiotic use.
