Abstract

Antibiotic resistance is a complex emergent issue affecting not only public heath but veterinary medicine as well. As part of a holistic infection prevention and biosecurity plan, antibiotic resistance and stewardship should be addressed from a One Health point of view, where multidisciplinary collaboration is vital. In the US and other first world countries, animal agriculture is playing an important role controlling and improving the use of antibiotics in animal production systems; however, lower-income countries must further improve in this regard.
