antibody Key issue to discuss with your congressional representatives in the next two weeks… We need access to products which ensure the health and wellbeing of our birds.

"H.R. 1549: Preservation of Antibiotics for Medical Treatment Act of 2009" was introduced by Representative Louise Slaughter in March 2009. The bill in question is geared to amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to "preserve the effectiveness of medically important antibiotics used in the treatment of human and animal diseases." Legislators are home to hear constituents. Tell your Representative.
