FDA reminds veterinarians to participate in survey about antiparasitic drug use and resistance in ruminants and horses

The FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) continues to ask bovine, small ruminant and equine practitioners, as well as veterinary parasitologists, to participate in a survey about antiparasitic drug use and resistance in ruminants and horses.Shutterstock103488437HorseEyeBridle300x200

The survey, which the FDA CVM launched four weeks ago, is intended to help the center better understand the level of awareness and concern within the veterinary community regarding antiparasitic resistance in grazing species. As of Oct. 14, the center had received 301 responses to the survey—14 of them from the AVMA survey link.

The survey will be open for one more week, until Nov. 3, 2015. Responses will directly impact future educational outreach efforts to encourage the sustainable use of approved antiparasitic drugs and various strategies to slow the development of resistance. If you’re a bovine, small ruminant, or equine veterinarian or a veterinary parasitologist, please see the reminder letter from the FDA CVM.
