Antimicrobial Stewardship

Responsible antimicrobial use in animals is important to veterinary medicine and in a One Health context, a key component of limiting the spread of antimicrobial resistance.

Antimicrobial Stewardship

Collaboration with CVMA

Along with Health Canada, CAHI collaborated with the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and the Animal Nutrition Association of Canada (ANAC) to help raise awareness of these changes.

  • Veterinarians should refer to the CVMA website for additional materials
  • Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency have created some template tools to assist veterinarians when writing feed prescriptions. The use of these templates is optional.

An ANAC fact sheet detailing how changes to the Compendium of Medicating Ingredient Brochures are managed can be found here.
