Following results of a survey in which almost three-quarters of vets cited poor owner compliance as a frequent cause of treatment failure when tackling bacterial infections, Bayer Animal Health is running a series of educational webinars on antimicrobials and their use.

The research among 135 veterinary professionals highlights challenges faced when treating bacterial infections – from selecting the right antimicrobial, to struggling with owner compliance.

A total of 73% of vets cited poor owner compliance as a frequent cause of treatment failure when tackling bacterial infections, and 5% said they send samples for culture and sensitivity testing routinely in cases where they suspect bacterial involvement.

To address these issues, while introducing a fresh perspective, the webinars feature expert speakers from a variety of disciplines within the veterinary profession, who tackle the approach to bacterial infections from different angles.

The webinars have been launched exclusively to veterinary professionals as part of the Veraflox “What Lies Beneath” campaign, which aims to help vets achieve bacteriological cure through education. The webinars are available on the Bayer vet portal and can be used towards CPD training.
