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. This vital resource contains 150 client handouts which can be printed directly from the CD-ROM.
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 CD 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.About the Author:
