U of C-developed app to help veterinarians prescribing antibiotics

  25 November 2021

University of Calgary researchers are hoping a new smartphone app they helped develop will improve veterinary care for animals across the country.

The app will help animal health professionals combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in animals. AMR is a defence that bacteria, viruses and parasites can build up against medications typically used to treat them, rendering treatments less and less effective over time. It’s frequently caused by overuse or misuse of medicines such as antibiotics. AMR is one of the top 10 global health threats facing humanity, according to the World Health Organization, and animals are also susceptible.
