A new guide has been launched to help vets refresh their knowledge of diagnosing antimicrobial infections.

Diagnosing Infections
Diagnosing Infections is the second publication in a series from Bayer Animal Health.

Diagnosing Infections is the second publication in a series from Bayer Animal Health and forms part of its Education Now, Safeguarding Antimicrobials initiative.

Different techniques

The guide lists the different diagnostic techniques available, as well as advice on how to perform them and interpret the results effectively, the company says.

Bayer group product manager Hannah Watts said the aim of the guide was to support vets in making optimal decisions when prescribing antimicrobials.

Reduce the risk

She said: “Deciding on the most appropriate product to use is vital for both the welfare of the animal and in helping to reduce the risk of antimicrobial resistance.”

Further resources will be released later this year to inform the Education Now, Safeguarding Antimicrobials’ campaign.

The guide is available to download from the Bayer Vet Centre. Alternatively, you can download the guide directly or contact your Bayer territory manager.
