Umweltbundesamt (Ed.) 2017: Landwirtschaft – Tierarzneimittel – Umwelt. Wie kann die Tierhaltung Einträge vermindern? UBA brochure. 12 pages. Dessau-Roßlau.

This brochure is aimed at farmers. It provides information on how veterinary medicines enter the environment and explains their environmental impact. It also identifies ways in which environmental aspects can be taken into account in the application of veterinary medicinal products and the use of fertilisers containing veterinary medicinal products. Precautionary health measures are of particular importance. Veterinary medicines that do not need to be administered in the first place cannot harm the environment.

This brochure summarizes selected contents of the internet portal "Veterinary Medicines in the Environment" [German] of the German Federal Environment Agency. The main focus of the portal is on livestock, in particular cattle, pigs and poultry.

Disease-preventing conditions in animal keeping reduce the consumption and entry of veterinary medicines into the environment.
