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

While pharmacists certainly can fill a prescription according to the veterinarian's instructions, they often don't. There seems to be a lack of respect on the part of some pharmacists toward veterinarians so that they question and change our scripts in a way they would not do for a physician. This issue is very important for the safety of our pets and must be addressed if pharmacists become more involved in veterinary medicine. __^^__^^__^^__^^__^^__^^ Susan Little, DVM, DABVP (Feline) Bytown Cat Hospital, Ottawa, Canada The Cat: Clinical Medicine & Management Winn Feline Foundation VIN Consultant (Feline, Repro/Genetics) __^^__^^__^^__^^__^^__^^
