Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria change to protect themselves from an antibiotic. The more we use antibiotics, the more chance bacteria have to become resistant to them.
- Not all sick pets need antibiotics – only give them under veterinary supervision
- Help reduce your pet’s need for antibiotics through routine vaccination, a clean environment and good nutrition
- Spread the word that people and animals could die because of antibiotic resistance — we all have a role to play
