The Second Edition of this popular formulary provides up-to-date, easily accessible information about drugs for all types of veterinary practices. From companion dogs, cats, exotics, reptiles, birds, and fish to horses, cattle, goats, sheep, and pigs, this handbook provides all the information needed in daily practice. Portable, concise, and easy to use, Handbook of Veterinary Drugs, Second Edition will be a staple in every veterinary practice. The book is divided along the lines of practice: small animal (dogs and cats), large animal (horses, cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs), and exotics (avian, rabbits, ferrets, reptiles, fish, and "pocket pets"). Each section begins with tables of dosages, followed by detailed descriptions of commonly prescribed medications. Each entry includes the drug name (along with US and Canadian trade names), followed by sections on: indications, adverse and common side effects, drug interactions, formulations, and other uses. Conversion tables and formulas are easy to locate and use. The index allows readers to look up either the generic or brand name for rapid access to the relevant information.
Included in the adverse effects section are long-term human exposure considerations, as required by US regulatory offices. Lecturers - Click here to order a FREE Review Copy of this title
