Veterinary medicines legislation: vote in European Parliament ENVI committee

The Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) is happy to see that the ENVI Committee puts much emphasis on fighting antimicrobial resistance in animals and people.

The Committee clearly recognizes the “prevention is better than cure” principle and the important role of veterinarians in keeping animals healthy. However, FVE remains concerned about the adoption of amendments that aim to ban certain antimicrobials for use in animals as this would lead to serious animal health and welfare issues.
