Leave a comment

At the ethics event this evening, Dr. Trisha Dowling talked about the emergence of resistant bacterial infections in animal patients and the potential hazards this can cause to pet owners. The increasing occurrence of both MRSA and MRSP in both human and animal patients has become a serious concern. To combat antibiotic resistance, veterinarians, physicians, producers, and the general public all have important roles to play. A link to the CBC news story, Bacteria getting the upper hand in antibiotic arms race, is posted below. We would love to here your thoughts on the topic of antibiotic resistance. Are we headed for the post-antibiotic era?
