On August 24 and 25, 2023, 70 representatives from 23 US veterinary colleges, 3 veterinary industry partners, and 2 government agencies, convened at the University of Minnesota for the Inaugural Small Animal Antimicrobial Stewardship Workshop. Participants included veterinarians, veterinary nurses, clinical microbiologists, pharmacists, epidemiologists, and infection preventionists. The goals of the meeting were to network with colleagues; define priorities for antimicrobial stewardship for teaching hospitals, research, and teaching in the veterinary professional curriculum; and to organize and plan for continued work in these areas.
