GAO Report on Antibiotic Use Oversight

24/03/17 By
MSD Veterinary Manual

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has issued a new report that calls on the FDA to increase oversight of medically important antibiotics that are used to prevent disease, which do not generally have a limit on duration of use. This would be in addition to the recent FDA rules that prevent medically important drugs from being used for growth promotion in food animals.

More information on antibiotic use in animal feed can be found in the MSD Veterinary Manual.
