AVMA Board of Directors Recommends Veterinary Pharmacology Education Policy for Approval


The proposed new policy reminds pharmacists to verify orders with prescribing veterinarians if there are questions.


The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Board of Directors has recommended for approval a new policy regarding veterinary pharmacology education for pharmacists, which will now go to the AVMA House of Delegates for approval.

The proposed new policy encourages veterinary pharmacology education through professional pharmacy curricula and continuing education, and reminds pharmacists to verify orders with prescribing veterinarians if there are questions. The policy also reminds veterinarians to make the prescriptions clear, and in line with all state rules to avoid medication errors.

More information on this policy and all others approved at the AVMA Board of Director’s spring meeting is available on the AVMA website.
