Antibiotic usage in veterinary practice: Do’s and dont’s

Lisha V
Antibiotics are vital drugs in veterinary medicine and cannot be replaced in the time ahead due to the paucity of appropriate replacements.

Judicious use of antibiotics must be propagated with great care by veterinarians across the world to safeguard both human and animal health collectively with one health approach.

This review aims to describe the salient principles for rationale use of antibiotics in veterinary practice.
