What is Elanco’s stance on the use of antibiotics in livestock?

Food safety begins with healthy animals. When animals get sick they need treatment, just as humans need treatment to combat various illnesses. Retaining access to effective antibiotics is important for animal welfare and human health. As part of the animal health industry, we have made a commitment to eliminate the use of shared-class (human and animal) antibiotics for growth promotion by 2017. These antibiotics, used by both humans and animals, will only be available for therapeutic use under veterinary oversight. And to ensure the long-term viability of human medicine, the industry is moving toward antibiotics used only in animals, and constantly exploring innovative tools. Finally, the industry is committed to collecting more data, for evaluation and continued improvement.
