Pets need medicines for the same types of illnesses that humans do. Scientists have developed medicines for animals to treat infectious diseases, heartworms, intestinal parasites, and drugs that enhance pets quality of life, such as motion sickness medicines. We have also developed vaccines to prevent devastating diseases such as rabies, canine parvovirus, and feline leukemia.

Vaccines to prevent animal diseases such as West Nile Virus, foot and mouth disease, and rabies.
Flea and tick products or insecticides to kill fleas, ticks, mites, and flies for pets, livestock and poultry.
Pharmaceuticals, including de-wormers, antibiotics to treat illnesses, and anti-inflammatory medicines for pain relief.
There are a variety of conditions that can affect food producing animals, such as bacterial and viral infections and parasitic infestations. In order to keep animals healthy and reduce suffering, animal medicines are administered by veterinarians and producers to prevent, control, and treat these problems.
Veterinarians have a broad range of animal medicines available to them in the fight against animal diseases. Animal medicines are used to:

-Prevent diseases. Vaccines and pharmaceuticals are needed to prevent and control infectious diseases among livestock and poultry.
-Treat sick animals. Antibiotics are necessary for the treatment of sick animals and to prevent the spread of disease to other livestock.
-Control outbreaks. Veterinarians use medicines to control internal and external parasites in animals.
How is farm animal health related to food safety?
Research shows that healthy animals are an important factor in providing safer food. Animal medicines are a critical link in the food safety chain, as they represent needed tools for farmers and veterinarians to help produce healthy animals and improve the availability of affordable protein.
Like human medicines, animal medicines undergo extensive trials and testing and must be approved by the Ugandan government before they enter the marketplace. All drugs must demonstrate that they are safe and effective for the labeled indication(s), must be properly labeled, and must be produced under good manufacturing practices.
To prevent and manage infectious diseases, it is sometimes necessary for veterinarians and farmers to use antibiotics. Research has shown the proper use of antibiotics can keep food animals healthy and reduce the potential for harmful bacterial contamination of finished meat products. Medically, important antibiotics added to feed or water are only used in animal food when it is necessary to treat, control, or prevent disease and illness, and exclusively under the supervision and prescription of a licensed veterinarian.
Animals will only be given medically-important antibiotics when it is necessary to treat, control or prevent diseases, and only under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian. These are all therapeutic uses, meaning there is no longer any sub-therapeutic use of medically important antibiotics in food animals.
