FDA Continues to Address Antiparasitic Resistance in Livestock and Horses


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration continues to work with stakeholders to address antiparasitic resistance in livestock (cattle, sheep, goats, swine, and poultry) and horses. In an on-going effort to help maintain the effectiveness of approved antiparasitic drugs, the FDA has produced two videos on antiparasitic resistance; released the results of a survey of the U.S. veterinary community about antiparasitic drug use and antiparasitic resistance in grazing animals; and asked animal drug companies to add information about antiparasitic resistance to the labels of all approved antiparasitic drugs for livestock and horses.
