The Australian Veterinary Association and Animal Medicines Australia are joining forces to develop best practice antibiotic prescribing guidelines for livestock and horses.

The announcement coincides with Antibiotic Awareness Week (16-23 November), a global initiative to raise awareness and spur action on antimicrobial resistance.

Graham Catt, CEO of the Australian Veterinary Association, said that veterinarians are an important partner in designing and implementing antimicrobial stewardship policies.

The Australian Veterinary Association and Animal Medicines Australia identified the need for prescribing guidelines tailored to Australian conditions, production systems and regulatory system for antibiotics.

The need for these guidelines was also highlighted in the National Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy released by the Australian Government earlier this year.

The development of the guidelines will take three years to complete. The Australian Department of Agriculture has also provided a grant to support the development of the guidelines for pigs.
