– Elbow dysplasia (Samoy)
– Urinary tract pathology (Matise)
Reducing antibiotic use
Responsible use of antibiotics is a hot topic – which is why EJCAP interviewed Ludo Hellebrekers, president of the Dutch Veterinary Association (KNMvD) in this issue’s “Focus on…” column.
In the Netherlands, a 50% reduction of antibiotic use in animals was achieved within 3 years, thanks to a joint initiative of the government, the veterinary profession and the farming industry. How was this managed? Is there also a drop in resistance? How can small animal practitioners contribute? Listen to the interview discussing these and other questions about the so-called “Dutch model”.
Exclusive for FECAVA members
As the official journal of the Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations (FECAVA), EJCAP online is exclusively available to FECAVA members. Registration is easy: interested practitioners should simply go to EJCAP online (www.fecava.org/ejcap) and indicate the national companion animal veterinary association of which they are member to obtain their password.
Finally, we’re delighted to announce that, starting this spring, EJCAP online is also available in Russian. Welcome to our Russian colleagues! Or, as they would say: Добро пожаловать!
