FDA seeks veterinarians' input on antibiotics resistance

As part of a multifaceted effort to combat antibiotics resistance, the FDA is distributing a survey to veterinarians who specialize in treating horses, cows and other ruminants, which are animals that obtain most of their nutrients by grazing. The survey is designed to help the agency understand the degree to which the veterinary community is aware and concerned about antibiotics resistance, according to a notice on its website. The FDA intends to use the responses to design educational efforts aimed at encouraging the responsible use of the drugs and the implementation of strategies meant to slow the spread of resistant bugs. Veterinarians have until Nov. 3 to complete the survey. Notice
