The Opioid Epidemic: What Veterinarians Need to KnowAug 16, 2018The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has published a resource that will help veterinarians comply with federal and state regulations for prescribing, storing and disposing of these products; know how to help pets that overdose; and identify signs that may indicate the potential for abuse.
Controlled Substance UpdateJul 6, 2018Henry Schein Animal Health continue to work with our vendors to obtain controlled substance products for our customers so that they can provide adequate anesthesia and pain management for their patients.
To prevent individuals from using pets to obtain pain medications to feed their opioid addiction, New Jersey is implementing stricter guidelines for reporting prescription information for animals.
The FDA alerts veterinarians and veterinary pharmacologists that the strength of epinephrine might be expressed differently on the labeling on certain human and animal epinephrine products. To avoid dosing errors in animals, the FDA recommends that veterinarians carefully review an epinephrine product’s labeling before administering the drug to determine if strength is expressed as mg/mL or as a ratio. The FDA also recommends that veterinary emergency dosage charts include epinephrine products that are labeled both ways (mg/mL and ratio) to reduce confusion and potential dosing errors.
