AVMA Board of Directors Recommends Policy for Veterinary Pharmacology Education

  • Veterinary Pharmacology Education for Pharmacists: the proposed new policy address the ever-increasing concerns that the AVMA has received from members, and advocates for three main concepts: 1) Veterinary pharmacology education, through professional pharmacy curricula and continuing education, is encouraged; 2) Pharmacists are reminded to verify the order with the prescribing veterinarian should any questions arise, and to refer the client back to the veterinarian if there are questions about patient care and/or use of over the counter drugs in the patient, and 3) Veterinarians are reminded to deliver clear prescriptions in line with state rules, to help avoid medication errors.
