Abstract (EN)Recent policy measures in France aiming at regulating the veterinary drug market, in particular the conditions under which antimicrobials are prescribed and sold, encourage a shift inveterinary knowledge and working conditions. The growth of epidemiological approaches and of franchised veterinary practices, whose business model is less dependent on the sales of antimicrobials, favours the development of a preventive veterinary medicine which tends to consume less antibiotics. This work is part of a research project on the evolution of the French veterinary drug market and is based on some thirty sociological interviews with poultry and pig veterinarians in western France.
