Veterinary Drug Residues (Antibiotics)

Veterinary drugs are substances that inhibit the growth of bacteria. They work by killing bacteria or preventing their reproduction, and may be synthesized chemically or by naturally-occurring or engineered organisms. Antibiotic residues in food of animal origin such as milk, eggs or meat represent a potential health risk to the consumer.

Due to the potentially carcinogenic and toxic properties of antibiotic residues and their allergic potential, the consumption of contaminated food establishes a direct risk for public health. Furthermore, the inappropriate use of antibiotics in animal husbandry and food production promotes the multi-drug resistance of pathogen bacteria for antibiotics used in human medicine.

Veterinary drugs are a complex group of substances with a couple of hundred actives belonging to different chemical classes and therapeutic areas.
