The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement Learning Center
3/10/21 Pharmaceutical Challenges in Sheltering
Medications, including compounds, are often necessary to treat our patients. But the cost of medications can add up quickly and the record keeping requirements can become challenging. This session will cover considerations when using compounded medications, including preparing them in-house. We will also discuss controlled substance record keeping for compounded and commercial products, as well as how COVID-19 has impacted medication access.
This session is part of the Shelter Medicine series, a collaboration between the Association of Shelter Veterinarians and The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
