If you can relate to this image, you have work to do before Jan 2022.

Animals get sick. Vets prescribe treatments. In some cases, farmers administer the prescribed treatments.

As of January 28th 2022, the freedom of vets to prescribe some antibiotics will be reduced. In an effort to tackle the increasing risk of antibiotic resistant infections in humans AND animals, a vet must consider the wider impacts of his or her treatment choices, most specifically, when choosing an antibiotic.

Antibiotics deemed High Priority or Critically Important (HP CIAs and CIAs) to human healthcare will be actively discouraged as a 1st line treatment for animals.

What can you and your vet do to prepare?
