The global spread of antimicrobial-resistant pathogenic bacteria is a continuing challenge to the health care of humans and domesticated animals. With no new agents on the horizon, it is imperative to use antimicrobial agents wisely to preserve their future efficacy.

An international team of experts in antimicrobial resistance of livestock and companion animals has created this valuable and comprehensive reference book, which includes among others:

  • general aspects of antimicrobial resistance and the multiple mechanisms by which bacteria become resistant to antimicrobial agents
  • resistance to metals used in livestock production and biocides that can coselect for antimicrobial resistance in bacteria
  • antimicrobial resistance in specific groups of bacteria that are obligate or facultative pathogens in livestock and companion animals
  • antimicrobial resistance in a One Health perspective
  • risk assessment and source attribution models
  • forward-looking perspectives on antimicrobial stewardship in veterinary medicine

This book is a “must-have” for veterinary students, practitioners, and microbiologists in academia, clinic and industry, but also for researchers and decision makers interested in understanding and preventing antimicrobial resistance.
