Through land application of animal waste as an organic fertilizer, these residual veterinary pharmaceuticals and antibiotic-resistant microorganisms enter into soil and water and may influence aquatic ecosystem and accumulate in food crops (Solomon et al. 2010; Carlsson et al. 2013). To assess the potential risks posed by veterinary pharmaceuticals from land application of animal waste, the occurrence of animal drug compounds in animal manures and their fate and transport in agricultural ecosystems need to be addressed.
