One big issue that has most of the animal health community talking at the moment is the ongoing debate over what the FDA should be doing in regards to the use of antibiotics in production animals. The problem comes from public concern over antibiotic-resistant organisms evolving.
We conducted a survey of animal health experts from all across the industry to see what they had to say about the subject.
The survey covers questions like:
What’s your opinion on the use of antibiotics in production animals?
How worried are you regarding the effects of antibiotic resistance on humans?
Do you think the US government should be doing more to regulate antibiotic use in production animals?
Do you think a decrease in antibiotic use in production animals would have a negative impact on business?
