Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is an increasing public health and animal health concern. Resistant organisms can reach people through the food chain, the environment, or other humans and animals. Recently, two OVC researchers led a national investigation into the impacts of antimicrobial use in animals and its relationship to antimicrobial resistance. A number of faculty at OVC continue to examine the effects of antimicrobial use on resistance as well as alternatives such as different livestock management practices and the use of probiotics. This work spans the fields of medicine from molecular epidemiology to preventing clinical discease in horses (and their managers).
