Are Category 1 antibiotics completely banned?

The policy we’ve put in place addresses the preventive use of Category I antibiotics such as Excenel® and Baytril® and does not impact the therapeutic use of Category I drugs for disease treatment.

Although the use of Category I antibiotics to treat disease is rare, therapeutic use will remain an option when necessary and prescribed by a veterinarian.
