AVMA Antimicrobial Stewardship

 Dear Colleagues

Your AVMA House of Delegates meets twice yearly. The Winter Session was held last weekend in Chicago. While several amendments, resolutions and topics were discussed and voted on, your Delegates and the NMVMA would like to bring one very important policy to the attention of all veterinarians in New Mexico; The Core Principles of Antimicrobial Stewardship in Veterinary Medicine. Antimicrobial resistance is a true and real problem for all health providers. It is important that each of us continue to become educated on when and what antibiotics to use and more importantly when not to use these powerful medications. We have included here an introductory letter by Dr Topper, the AVMA President, and a link to the policy. The AVMA website also has more information.

Please take a few minutes to read this policy. If you have any questions feel free to contact us or your AVMA.

Sincerely

T. Murt Byrne, DVM AVMA Delegate
Darryl Leslie, DVM AVMA Alternate Delegate
