Veterinary antibiotics - fact not fiction
NOAH would like to dispel the “myth and misunderstanding” surrounding
regulation and use of antibiotics, following the publication in December
2015 of a Report on Antimicrobials in Agriculture, as part of the AMR Review
chaired by Lord O’Neill.
“There appears to be confusion about current rules on
antibiotic use in farming in the UK,” says NOAH’s Chief Executive Officer,
Dawn Howard. “Whilst the issue of global antibiotic resistance is a real
concern, the situation will not be helped by misinformation, especially when
we are dealing with animal welfare,” she warns.
