Antimicrobial Choices and their Efficacy

Monday, May 14, 2018
8:00 AM to 9:30 AM

There are substantial datasets which inform us as to what antibiotics accomplish in food animals.  Our antibiotic choices are based on this anticipated efficacy as well as cost, and the ability to get the drug into the animal at the correct dose and frequency.  This session explores these areas in a manner designed to support clinical decision making.
