Dog owners are being urged to help Public Health England (PHE), the Veterinary Medicines Directory (VMD) and pet owner awareness charity The Bella Moss Foundation (BMF) to join the fight against antibiotic resistance.

Antibiotic resistance means that an antibiotic has lost its ability to effectively control or kill the bacteria for which it has been given. Whilst resistance is a natural process, the inappropriate and overuse of antibiotics can speed up the development of antibiotic resistance.

In support of 2015 European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD), which runs alongside World Antibiotic Awareness Week, PHE, VMD and BMF are calling on members of the public including dog owners to commit to tackling antibiotic resistance by becoming Antibiotic Guardians. Antibiotic Guardians https://antibioticguardian.com/ is a campaign led by PHE where people are asked to make one pledge about a personal action they will take to help combat antibiotic resistance.
