What factors need to be considered before prescribing an antibiotic?

Antibiotics are controlled in the UK, and only veterinarians and doctors can prescribe them. All veterinarians must be Members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS) and as such, must adhere to its codes on use of medicines. A guide to the RCVS’s code of professional conduct which outlines how veterinarians should use medicines can be found here.
