The Antimicrobial Use Guidelines were authored by The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine to serve as guidance for the judicious use of antimicrobials in veterinary medicine. These documents provide prescribing recommendations for companion animal, equine, and food animal species and reflect the common prescribing practices in The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center. The Antimicrobial Use Guidelines were ultimately created to promote animal health by reducing the risk of resistant infections, educate veterinary students and guide veterinary clinicians in choosing appropriate antimicrobials, and benefit society by reducing the problem of antimicrobial resistance as it affects both human and animal health.
