Publication of Nicolas Fortané’s article “Antimicrobial resistance: Preventive approaches to the rescue? Professional expertise and business model of French ‘industrial’ veterinarians”, in Review of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Studies. This paper deciphers the current controversies regarding the business model of veterinary medicine and its supposed responsibility in the AMR problem. It goes back in the 1970's and 1980's to understand how such a model based on the sale of pharmaceuticals has been established and has shaped veterinary professional expertise.
