Resistance Data Veterinary Medicine

Resistance monitoring in livestock and meat

Resistance monitoring in zoonotic and indicator bacteria of healthy slaughter animals was harmonized EU-wide in 2014

Surveillance of antibiotic resistance in zoonotic indicator bacteria was established in 2014 according to European guidelines. These data can be compared with other European countries and Norway. They are published annually by EFSA. The annual ARCH-Vet reports summarize the most relevant findings, whereas a full report of all analyses is given in the Swiss antibiotic resistance reports every two years.



Resistance monitoring in diseased animals

Resistance data in sick animals is available since 2019

Antibiotic resistance monitoring in relevant pathogens of diseased livestock and companion animals is important for veterinarians, as it enables them to make appropriate antibiotic treatment choices.

In 2019, the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) initiated annual antibiotic resistance monitoring in veterinary pathogens. This is carried out at the national reference laboratory for antibiotic resistance (ZOBA).
