Responsible AM use in the management of respiratory disease

A case study by Helen Braid that describes how stewardship was implemented in a case where a horse presented with a respiratory illness.

In this video, Helen Braid walks you through a case study on antimicrobial stewardship in equine practice.

The patient is a racing thoroughbred horse with a history of an intermittent cough that has worsened over the last 3 weeks and a small volume of mucopurulent nasal discharge is seen intermittently. Their clinical examination was unremarkable.

This is a common scenario that is often approached by antimicrobials. However Helen describes how antimicrobial stewardship was implemented in this case.

How would you have treated this horse at your practice, before starting this course? Has this changed now? Please discuss in the comments section.
