The FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is asking 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.
The survey, which the FDA CVM will launch tomorrow (Sept. 29), is intended to help the center better understand the level of awareness and concern within the veterinary community regarding antiparasitic resistance in grazing species. The survey will be open for five weeks.
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 attached letter from the FDA CVM.
