Equine practice

Discussion on challenges in Equine Practice

In this video, Helen Braid provides potential discussion barriers for antimicrobial stewardship in equine practice.

Challenges faced in equine practice:

  • Client expectation & pressure.
  • Drug availability.
  • Drug licensing.
  • Diagnostics.
  • Competition rules.
  • Knowledge.

If equine is your speciality, think about whether or not you have faced any of these challenges in your practice. How did you overcome them? Are there other challenges that were not mentioned in this video?

If you specialise in a different species discipline, are there any crossovers in the challenges faced in equine and your discipline?

Discuss your answers in the comments section.

In the video, Helen Braid suggests that you have a look at the papers in the see also section below. These discuss the dosage of Trimethoprim/sulphadiazine (TMPS) particularly in relation to whether it should be dosed once daily as per the data sheet or twice daily. What do you think?
