Tell commercial pet stores to stop using antibiotics in healthy puppies
Dear Pet Store CEOs,
Antibiotics are meant to treat infections, not prevent disease in healthy animals. When antibiotics are overused, it increases the likelihood that all kinds of bacteria, including the ones that make people sick, will develop resistance, and our life-saving medicines won't work. If we don't take action, public health experts warn we could be headed for a "post-antibiotic era."
Nobody wants their pet to be a source of antibiotic resistant bacteria. To protect these life-saving medicines and promote healthy practices, your company should commit to no longer using antibiotics on healthy animals.
