Antibiotics In Farm Animals

June 8, 2019

Did you know that the amount of antibiotics sold in the U.S. for use in livestock is four times higher that the amount sold for use in people?


Did you know that this overuse of antibiotics in farm animal has contributed greatly to the dramatic increase in antibiotic resistant bacteria?


For many years warnings from veterinarians that this overuse would promote antibiotic resistant bacteria were ignored. Now it is recognized that humans have created a major health risk. 


You can do your part to stop this over use in farm animals by joining the antibiotic-free movement. Only buy meat and poultry raised without antibiotics and  support restaurants that are going antibiotic free.
