2019 Veterinary Antimicrobial Sales Highlights Report

Working towards the preservation of effective antimicrobials for humans and animals


  • Antimicrobials have been grouped according to their importance to human medicine and the report reflects our integration, analysis and interpretation of submitted data.
  • Sales of antimicrobials may not reflect patterns of antimicrobial use.
  • As there was improved provincial reporting of sales data in 2019, this should be taken into consideration when comparing the sales data between 2018 and 2019.

Key findings

In 2019, which is the second year of sales reporting, the key findings provide a comprehensive picture of antimicrobials available for veterinary use and support our antimicrobial resistance surveillance program and stewardship:
