Abstract Members of the Western Canadian Association of Bovine Practitioners were surveyed regarding their use of antimicrobials in bovine abdominal surgery. Perioperative antimicrobials were used in 100\% of abdominal surgeries by 96 of 98 respondents. Although postoperative administration was the most common perioperative period for antimicrobial use, intraoperative intraperitoneal use was reported by more than half of the veterinarians surveyed. Procaine penicillin G and oxytetracycline were the most commonly administered perioperative antimicrobials.
