ANTI-MICROBIAL RESISTANCE

Antimicrobial resistance

Researchers must not use antibiotics unless necessary. Use of anti-microbials requires AEC approval and to be prescribed by the veterinarian. The use of anti-microbials prophylactic post-surgery, if the surgery was sterile, is particularly problematic and probably unnecessary. In the case of post-surgical use of prophylactic antibiotics, the researcher must provide scientific justification to the AEC.
