Animals, like people, sometimes fall ill. Infectious diseases in animals, as a matter of nature, cannot be completely avoided despite all possible measures of care such as good housing, hygiene, nutrition and vaccination.
At Bayer, we believe that when an animal is diagnosed with a bacterial infection, it deserves to be treated. This means that effective antibiotics are essential for the treatment of pets as well as farm animals that are ill with bacterial infections, in the interest of their well-being and health.
It means justified use (based on a properly established diagnosis) of the most appropriate registered antibiotic. At the same time, taking reasonable steps to ensure the method of use (including dose regime) and precautions applied help limit the potential for resistance to develop.
