Working Together, We Can Reduce the Need for Animal Antibiotics

Antibiotic resistance is a public health priority. In fact, November 18 – 24 is World Antibiotic Awareness Week, a global effort to showcase coordinated actions to reduce the need for antibiotics and to ensure that when antibiotics are used, they are used responsibly. The best strategy for reducing the threat of antibiotic resistance without compromising animal health is to reduce the need for antibiotics through better prevention, earlier detection, and more efficient treatment such as vaccines.
