Antibiotic resistance, a real challenge in veterinary medicine

Antibiotic resistance is a very real threat of increasing importance in veterinary practices globally. 

Inappropriate use of antibiotics is a contributing factor, often caused by a lack of awareness and lack of practical guidelines to refer to. With the GRAM book, vets have now a practical guide to help them in their daily practice.

Why is antibiotic resistance so important? Because it's a universal concern. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria can pass from our pets to our families and inversely. That’s why resistance to antibiotics threatens the health of our pets and our families.
