Infection prevention in veterinary medicine

Nosocomial infections (NI) and multidrug-resistant pathogens are a growing problem in veterinary medicine. The aim of the B. Braun Vet Care Initiative is to create awareness and offer solutions that lie in your hands.

We strive to explain, educate, and make your everyday clinical work safer and easier. Ensuring that patients receive optimal care and that the risks of NI are minimized lies in your hands.

Together, we want to reduce the infection rate in veterinary medicine with concrete hygiene and process optimizations. It is in your hands to ensure that the spread of zoonoses is brought down and that antibiotic use is reduced to a minimum so that microorganisms do not become macro-problems.

Together, we are following the “One Health Idea” – It’s in your hands.
