Honored Congress Delegates, as we contemplate how to be more responsible with the use of systemic antibiotics in the management of canine pyoderma, there are several important concepts to consider. Antibiotic stewardship involves assessing and improving how and why antibiotics are prescribed by veterinarians, and how they are used by our clients and patients. Canine pyoderma is a common condition seen in veterinary practice, and in the past systemic antibiotics were frequently prescribed, often for long periods, or on a recurring basis. Using topical therapies in appropriate cases of canine pyoderma can improve treatment outcomes, focus attention on underlying issues, reduce adverse effects, and help minimize the risk of antibiotic resistance.
