This seminar is open to veterinarians, veterinary technicians, veterinary hospital staff, and veterinary students only.

Course Description

With the increase in antibiotic resistance in both humans and animals, especially methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus, we need to be better stewards of antibiotics while still treating pyodermas. In this course, we will discuss when to perform cultures and sensitivities, appropriate antibiotic usage, and alternatives to oral antibiotics to treat resistant infections.

This webinar is geared for small animal practitioners.

This course satisfies the one hour of California CE requirement on the judicious use of medically important antimicrobial drugs.
