Genre: Medical

The Veterinary Drug Handbook: Client Information Edition helps veterinarians and pharmacists bridge the drug information gap between themselves and the people (clients; owners) who are treating their animals. Several studies have demonstrated that people receiving verbal information from health professionals retain very little of that information once they leave the premises of their health provider. The information provided in this book will supplement the actual care provided and help in the task at hand, namely to improve the health of animals. The authors have included drugs that are commonly prescribed by small animal and equine practitioners, both those that are veterinary and “human” labeled medications. The authors also provide this information in a format that can be understood by any reader. The information presented in these monographs will enable the animal caregiver to be better informed about the medication in question and to work with their veterinarian and pharmacist on the journey to positive therapeutic outcomes.
