Abstract: Inappropriate antibiotic usage in food animals is a serious food safety concern that contributes to the development of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria. A cross-sectional study was conducted to assess the usage of antimicrobials as well as the perspective of cattle and goat farmers regarding the use of antimicrobials in the Fatikchari Upazila of Chattogram, Bangladesh. The data was collected from the 110 cattle and goat farmers in Fatikchari, Chattogram by a well-structured and pre-prepared questionnaire. The most commonly used antibiotics in the field of study were streptomycin-penicillin, ceftriaxone, amoxicillin, and penicillin, according to the findings. The participants said that their prescribers did not aware of the drug withdrawal time and that 97% of them did not follow it and they were also unaware of the effect of antimicrobial resistance on animal health. Only 26% of farmers always followed a veterinarian's advice. Three more key prescriber groups recommending antimicrobials were discovered during the study: drug sellers/dealers experienced local farmers, and the farmer himself. To combat this antibiotic resistance challenge, the study demonstrated the importance of farmer awareness initiatives as well as antimicrobial stewardship programs aimed at veterinarians and other stakeholders.
