Reducing Antibiotic Usage on Farm Meeting 7th June 2017, The Bell Inn, Chittlehampton -7:30pm

I am sure you are all aware, antibiotic usage on farm is under increasing scrutiny and there is increasing pressure to reduce usage in all areas of both human and animal medicine. We firmly believe there is a place for responsible use of antibiotics on farm but in order to retain this we need to be proactive in reducing usage on farm where possible.

In this meeting the farm team will join forces to discuss responsible use of antibiotics in all areas of farm practice focusing on key areas were usage can be reduced or tailored to the most appropriate cases. We will discuss treatment protocols, use of alternatives or management practices to reduce antibiotic usage and key drugs to be reserved for tricky cases.

The date is now confirmed so if you are interested in joining us for what is sure to be an interesting and lively discussion, please contact the surgery to book a place.
