E-BOOKLET: VETERINARY DRUG CONTROL AND MANAGEMENT FOR THE PRACTISING VETERINARIAN

This e-booklet provides an excellent source of information on veterinary drug control and management for the practising veterinarian. Veterinary drug control is complex in South Africa with a dual registration and regulatory system and several interlinking Acts impacting on veterinary conduct in using veterinary products. This guide has in-depth detail on the veterinary drug requirements for supply chain, transport, storage, use, residue control and pharmacovigilance and includes best dispensing practices for veterinarians. The information provided has been updated from the last edition to reflect the most current amendments to the existing legislation and therefore ensures veterinary compliance with contemporary requirements. There is clear direction on the practising veterinarian’s responsibility and accountability in controlling and managing veterinary drugs in today’s regulatory climate.
