Sales of veterinary antibiotics have halved over the past four years

  30 October 2019

Sales of antibiotics for use in food-producing animals have reduced by 53 percent in just four years between 2014 – 2018, the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) confirmed 29 October 2019.

The reduction demonstrates the strong and committed approach taken by the UK’s food, farming and veterinary sectors to tackle AMR. The figure comes from the annual Veterinary Antibiotic Resistance Sales and Surveillance (UK-VARSS) report published today. It builds on reductions previously published by past VARSS reports.
