The hazard is associated with either accidental inoculation, splashing the product into the eyes or mucous membrane, or contamination of the broken skin (211,212). In one survey, almost 10% of veterinarians reported a needle stick injury per year (212). The result may be an infection (certain live products), inflammation, or an allergic reaction. Inflammation or allergic reactions may occur from inoculating either live or killed products, the adjuvant, or the foreign protein in the product (211).

There are two main occupational hazards: allergic reactions and the development of antibiotic-resistant infections. There are many different products used as feed additives, but the main ones include penicillin, tetracycline, sulfamethazine, erythromycin, and virginiamycin. These same products plus many more are used therapeutically.
