Resist the resistance! Be the antibiotic steward in your veterinary practice


Dr. Jason Stull has three ways to curb the disturbing trend of antimicrobial resistance.

"In human medicine, anywhere from 30% to 50% of all antibiotics are inappropriately prescribed," says Jason Stull, VMD, MVPM, PhD, DACVPM. Veterinary practices can do better! Dr. Stull recommends picking a team in your practice to keep on top of antibiotic use in the clinic and gather resources on implementing best practices.

Some resources for best antimicrobial practices from Dr. Stull:

Client education posters from the American Veterinary Medical Association

Website and app for antimicrobial use in urinary tract infections in small animals from the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association

Guidelines on antimicrobial use for urinary tract infections in cats and dogs from the International Society for Companion Animal Infectious Diseases

Guidelines on antimicrobial use for superficial pyoderma in dogs from the International Society for Companion Animal Infectious Diseases
