 AVMA Statement on FDA News Release of April 11, 2012

Veterinarians routinely operate at the interface between human and animal health, and the AVMA commends the FDA for reaching out to the veterinary and public health communities, the animal agriculture community, animal drug sponsors, the USDA and all other interested stakeholders in developing a collaborative, practical strategy that addresses antimicrobial resistance concerns while remaining protective of both human and animal health.

The AVMA looks forward to continued collaborative efforts with the FDA as we focus on finding solutions to this important public health issue.
