Quick-reference veterinary medicines information: what's available?
This guide from Veterinary Prescriber looks at the quick-reference sources that help UK veterinary practitioners prescribe and supply veterinary medicines effectively and safely.... and within the law. It outlines the sources of information on authorised uses of medicines. For unauthorised uses (prescribed and supplied under the cascade), the article explains what information is legally required to be given to the client, and where you can find that information.
The guide was produced through a collaborative process. The first draft was prepared by Andrea Tarr. This draft was reviewed by a wide range of commentators (including the representatives of the Veterinary Medicines Directorate and publishers of reference sources, and practising veterinary surgeons and pharmacists). The result is a comprehensive and practical guide.
