Veterinary Oversight of Antimicrobial Use – A Pan-Canadian Framework for Professional Standards for Veterinarians

The document, Veterinary Oversight of Antimicrobial Use – A Pan-Canadian Framework for Professional Standards for Veterinarians, was developed as a collaboration between the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association’s (CVMA) Veterinary Pharmaceutical Stewardship Advisory Group (VPSAG) and the Canadian Council of Veterinary Registrars (CCVR).

The Framework document represents a significant accomplishment of the veterinary profession in Canada to address the responsibilities that accompany the Federal Government implementation of increased veterinary oversight of antimicrobials. Outstanding issues to be addressed include surveillance of use and distribution. The veterinary profession will continue to be engaged in the important discussions at the provincial and national levels.
