Verschleppung von Tierarzneimitteln im Stall

Verschleppung von Tierarzneimitteln im Stall

Carry-over of veterinary medicines is an unnecessary environmental burden, can endanger the health of handlers and have no therapeutic benefit for animals.

Care and hygiene help to minimise the direct entry of veterinary medicines into the environment. Carry-over of veterinary medicines is an unnecessary waste, can endanger the health of operators and have no therapeutic benefits for animals. Carry-over antibiotics can contribute to the development of resistance in humans, animals and the environment. This infographic illustrates five ways to reduce the carry-over of veterinary medicines in the barn.
