2. Scenario

companion02.jpgSue Harrington, DVM is a small-animal clinician at the Kelva School of Veterinary Medicine. Don Bosch is a journalist with a local newspaper who has heard that antimicrobial use by veterinarians may contribute to the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance in humans, and this has lead certain individuals and organizations to recommend a ban on antimicrobial use in animals. Don also has a dog that was recently treated with antimicrobials for a bladder infection and has an appreciation for the importance of these medications in treating his own pet. Don wants to interview Sue to write an article for his paper investigating antimicrobial use in small animals and the potential impact of antimicrobial use in small animals on the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance.
