Ceva Donates 3,000 Pounds To Royal Dick School Of Veterinary Studies
Ceva Animal Health has donated £3,000 to the Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies (Edinburgh University) to help fund a student-led project on antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
The donation of 10p from each pack of antibiotics sold by Ceva follows a successful 2016 campaign to raise awareness of antimicrobial resistance and the benefits of its antibiotics’ product range which includes palatability, accurate dosing, flexible presentations and easy-to-give awards from ICC (International Cat Care).
Allison Henry, product manager at Ceva Animal Health, says: “We have a very good relationship with the Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies and it was an easy decision for us to support its students with this donation. Antimicrobial resistance is a very hot topic for human and animal health and as a manufacturer we have a duty to contribute as much as we can. Students are the next generation of veterinary surgeons and if we can educate them about antimicrobial resistance early on it will have a long term positive effect ensuring these products are used as rationally as possible and only when necessary.”
Dr Tim Nuttall, head of dermatology at the Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies, adds: “We are very grateful to Ceva Animal Health for its generous support of our student research projects into antimicrobial resistance. These give our veterinary students an immensely valuable insight into the problems of antimicrobial resistance and helps them find novel approaches to counter this threat. This will not only benefit their careers but will also be of great value to vets, animals and owners throughout the world.”
Ceva Animal Health will continue to support practices in their efforts to use antibiotics responsibly throughout 2017 with the launch of GRAM (Guidance for the Rational use of AntiMicrobials), a practical, easy-to-use guide on the rational use of antimicrobials in dogs and cats.
