Aminoglycosides approved for use in food animals in the United States include dihydostreptomycin, efrotomycin, hygromycin B, neomycin, spectinomycin, streptomycin, and apramycin (37).
Apramycin is predominantly used in poultry breeder flocks for short periods, to treat clinical cases of colibacillosis and infections caused by E.
