The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in faecal Campylobacter spp. from lambs and adult sheep and associations between antimicrobial use (AMU) and AMR. A total of 275 faecal samples collected during initial and final visits from 51 sheep flocks, including one feedlot, across southern Ontario were(More)
This study examined characteristics of the use of drugs, especially antimicrobials, on Ontario sheep farms. Forty-nine sheep farms participated in a 12-month prospective study. Producers documented treatment events during the study period and drug use data from the records were summarized. The most frequently used drugs of the 15 drug categories used by(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence and patterns of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in enteric bacteria obtained from Ontario sheep flocks, and associations between antimicrobial use (AMU) and AMR. Forty-nine sheep producers participated for a 1-year interval between 2006 and 2008. Two-hundred and eighty-three pooled fecal samples were(More)
Few antimicrobials are licensed for use in sheep in Canada, and the range of indications is narrow. Treatment in an "extra-label" manner may be ineffective. In addition, potentially harmful drug residues in food-animal products and antimicrobial resistance in bacteria may be associated with extra-label drug use (ELDU). No data had been documented on drug(More)
