The term ’antimicrobial stewardship’ is defined as ’an organisational or healthcare
system wide approach to promoting and monitoring judicious use of antimicrobials to preserve their future
effectiveness’. (NICE guidelines 2015). In order to practice
antimicrobial stewardship in veterinary dermatology it is important to be able to diagnose the presence of
infection accurately so that antimicrobial therapy is only prescribed where it is needed. Furthermore, with the
careful selection of antimicrobials, ensuring the correct drugs are used in the correct way, for an appropriate length of time until the infection has completely resolved we can ensure that antimicrobials remain an effective therapy for infection in the future.

Learning objectives

1) Appreciate the clinical signs that are associated with canine bacterial skin infection

2) Know how to take basic skin samples to assess for the presence of infection

3) Appreciate which forms of antimicrobial therapy are most appropriate for different types of infection

4) Understand which topical drugs can be used to treat bacterial infection

5) Know how to assess the end point of treatment so that therapy can be discontinued or cut to maintenance levels
