Weekly roundup


This week’s #PrescribingTips

Some vaccines contain mineral oil which can cause serious injury if self-injected. Know if the vaccines you use contain mineral oil and what to do in case of self-injection.

What else we have been up to this week:

  • It’s press week for Veterinary Prescriber and Veterinary Medicines CPD. So we’ve been getting the latest modules “Flea infestations- treating the environment“ and “Sources of information on licensed veterinary medicines” ready for publication: proofreading, layout, recording, final checks.

  • We’ve been preparing the latest newsletters.

  • Developed a research summary and position statement on cannabidiol (CBD) for CAM Canine Arthritis Management

  • Continuing to work very hard to spread the word about independent veterinary medicines information.

  • Had a very important business meeting to discuss ways of providing prescribing support for practising vets.

  • Developed the module outlines on paracetamol as a pain reliever for dogs, and on dispensing.

Our purpose...

...is to provide vets with high-quality, independent, comparative information they won't find elsewhere. However, it costs money to do this. We are a small, self-funded company of two dedicated full-timers (Andrea Tarr and Carl Russell), together with a team of regular and occasional writers, editors, reviewers, verifiers and proofreaders, who support our rigorous editorial process. We are absolutely passionate about independent information and empowering vets by giving them what they need to make rational decisions about medicines. Buying a subscription supports independent information you can trust. If you are getting free information ask yourself who is paying for it and why!
