Tetracyclines are a group of closely related bacteriostatic antibiotics with similar antibacterial spectra. Tetracyclines are used extensively in veterinary medicine and their use in food producing animals could result in potentially harmful concentrations in tissue, organs and milk. Oxytetracyclines are part of the Tetracycline group and are widely used as growth promoters in animal husbandry and agriculture.
Seeing the considerable amounts of tetracyclines used worldwide, monitoring of these antibiotics is paramount. In recent years the European Union and United States have enforced prohibitions and restrictions for tetracyclines in order to combat tetracycline resistance and tetracycline bacteria in feedstuff.
