Clinical Discussion : Episode 22

Examining antimicrobial stewardship in veterinary dermatology


Discussing how bacteria can form biofilm and the products that can disrupt this layer

Sponsored by Nextmune

On this segment of dvm360 Live!™, Adam Christman, DVM, MBA, and Andrew Rosenberg, DVM, DACVD, discuss antimicrobial stewardship and the practice of responsibly using antimicrobials. By adhering to principles of antimicrobial stewardship, veterinarians can minimize the risk of resistance development, protect the health of their animal patients, and contribute to the broader effort to safeguard the effectiveness of these essential medications for current and future generations.

Below is a partial transcript. Check out the full video above for more:

Andrew Rosenberg, DVM, DACVD: One of the hottest topics we've ever seen around antimicrobial resistance right now is this idea of biofilm. Biofilms are when groups of bacteria or yeast can conglomerate together on the surface of the skin or even inside the ear, and they embed themselves in this slime layer. When they're embedded in that slime layer, they're resistant to lots of different antibiotics, physical stresses, [and] chemical stresses. When we think about these biofilms, you want to think about products that can actually disrupt these biofilms and make it easier to kill those microorganisms.
