Antimicrobial resistance is a global challenge. Both the World Health Organisation and the European Union state that increasing knowledge is key to facing this challenge. Antibiotics in animal husbandry are a known source of antimicrobial resistance, but the fate of active pharmaceutical ingredients, and the generation and spread of antimicrobial resistance from wider veterinary sources is unclear. VETMED aims to quantify the environmental occurrence of veterinary active pharmaceutical ingredients, improving the understanding of the significance of these medications as a source of active pharmaceutical ingredients and antimicrobial resistance.
