Veterinary Drugs Use 7 Major Mistakes !

- Nov 22, 2018-

Misunderstanding 1: Imported drugs are better than domestic ones

Many people think that the quality and effect of imported veterinary drugs are better than domestic products. In fact, under the strict policy control, China's veterinary drug products have the same quality, raw material composition and clinical effect as imported products, even better than imported products. Farmers do not have to purchase excessively imported drugs, increasing the cost of farmers.

Myth 2: People use drugs better than veterinary drugs

The use of human medicine to prevent livestock diseases is a violation of laws and regulations. The use of human veterinarians is difficult to use according to the dosages and methods of administration indicated in the instructions. The chances of pathogenic microorganisms producing resistance are greatly increased, and once drug resistance is produced, the control difficulty of animal epidemics will be multiplied.

Misunderstanding 3: cheap products are also easy to use

Some farmers are eager to buy cheap, buy small and medium-sized veterinary drug manufacturers that are not GMP-certified, or fake and inferior products, not only the treatment effect is often not guaranteed, but also economic losses in serious cases. Therefore, livestock and poultry farmers should purchase products in formal channels, use drugs rationally under the guidance of veterinarians, and do not use counterfeit products.

Myth 4: Antibiotics are panacea

Antibiotics are a kind of medicine that is often used clinically to inhibit the growth of bacteria. However, blindly taking antibiotics sometimes plays a counterproductive role. It not only does not play a therapeutic role, but also delays the pathogenesis; It will cause great harm to the culture, for example, increase the cost of breeding, increase the number of resistant strains, and not select sensitive drugs.

Myth 5: Vaccines can be treated

Vaccines can't cure diseases, they can only prevent diseases. The vaccine is a micro-inactivated preparation of a certain disease virus. After entering the livestock and poultry, it will not cause the body to infect the disease. It only allows the body to have a memory of the virus, so that the body produces memory cells, which can be in the body for a long time. After the same virus invades, the memory cells will recognize him and quickly produce antibodies to kill the virus and avoid the disease. However, it is only a preventive effect, and once the infection has symptoms, it still needs medication.

Myth 6: The bigger the dosage of the drug, the better.

Some farmers are eager to increase their dosage blindly when using drugs for livestock and poultry. The result is counterproductive. The use of livestock and poultry medicine needs to calculate the amount of use according to the condition, body weight, dosage, and the choice of the correct selection of the drug's variety, dosage and taking time, in order to achieve the desired therapeutic effect, otherwise it will not only fail to achieve therapeutic effect but also cause serious damage. Drug residue phenomenon.

Myth 7: Any medicine can be mixed

Combination therapy has been one of the current methods for treating livestock diseases. However, not all compatibility is reasonable, and some compatibility weakens the therapeutic effect of the drug, leading to treatment failure. For example, compatibility increases side effects or toxicity, causing serious adverse reactions; compatibility makes the therapeutic effect excessively enhanced, beyond the ability of the body to tolerate, can also cause adverse reactions, and even harm livestock and poultry. Therefore, the combination of drugs must be carried out under the guidance of a veterinarian, and must not be done on its own to avoid unnecessary losses.
