The use of systemic antibiotics for prophylaxis in veterinary ophthalmic surgery – a practitioner survey of current protocols

Contact: Ruby Shorrock MRCVS PGCertSAOphthal, Paragon Referrals

A researcher at Paragon Referrals is seeking veterinary practitioners who perform ophthalmic surgeries to complete a survey on the use of prophylactic intravenous and oral antibiotics during and after an ophthalmic procedure in dogs and cats. Gaining insight into the use of prophylactic antibiotics in veterinary ophthalmology will help provide more data towards improving responsible use of antibiotics and the One Health approach to reducing antimicrobial resistance.
