Request for Comments and Announcement of Workshop on Pet Medications Issues, Project No. P121201

I am a veterinarian in Peachtree City, Georgia. I have been in practice for 23 years. Veterinarians are in a unique position regarding the health of animals, especially concerning pet pharmaceuticals. Pharmacists are not trained regarding animal health and some of the unique drug interactions we encounter. Because of this, I believe veterinarians need to be integrally involved in the prescribing of and fulfillment of veterinary pharmaceuticals.
