vet-webinar „Peri-operative antimicrobial use“

Indiscriminate use of antimicrobials is an international concern in health sciences and veterinarians have a responsibility to adhere to appropriate practice. The risk of surgical site infection (SSI) in small animal surgery poses a challenge in some situations and perioperative antimicrobials play a role in reducing this risk.  Considerations for antimicrobial use in small animal surgery will be discussed, examining NRC surgery classification and SSI risk, and presenting discussion on drug selection and duration of administration. Evidence-based literature and reference to prescribing guidelines will be included.
