Antibiotic Resistance in Pets and People
We rely on antibiotics to fight some infections in people and pets.
But anytime antibiotics are used, they can contribute to the development of antibiotic resistance.
People and pets can sometimes get sick with antibiotic-resistant infections, which are harder to treat.
Make sure your pets only get antibiotics when needed, and follow your veterinarian’s instructions if you need to give your pet antibiotics.
Appropriate antibiotic use in people and pets helps protect the whole family — including furry, feathered, and scaly family members– from antibiotic-resistant infections.
