The use of antibiotics in animal production has led to the emergence of antibiotic resistant microorganisms with severe consequences in animal and human health. To counterbalance and substitute the use of antibiotics as antimicrobial agents, a comprehensive effort has been directed towards the development of new therapeutic strategies and Veterinary Medicine offers an appealing field for the implementation of such an effort. Probiotics and bacteriophages are two of the alternatives discussed.

Keywords: Antibiotic resistance bacteria, Bacteriophages, Food-borne pathogens, Microbiome, Phage therapy, Probiotics.
