Drugs and Pharmacy

The OVMA has been engaged with the issue of pharmacies and prescriptions for the past several years and has been a national leader on this subject. We were the first veterinary organization—state or national—to conduct a practitioner survey on the topic, and we were the first to address such concerns with a board of pharmacy.

We hope this information answers questions you might have about veterinary prescriptions and the role of pharmacies, and believe it provides you with practical guidance as you discuss veterinary medications with your clients and retail pharmacists. The purpose is to help ensure that your patients receive the medications you have prescribed in the correct form and at the appropriate dosage.
