It is important that you understand why particular drugs are dispensed, and be aware of any possible side-effects. To that end, we endeavour to inform you when dispensing, often with provision of a written data sheet. On some occasions however your pet’s medication may have been dispensed without a paper copy of a related data sheet. To access the drug information simply click this NOAH Compendium link which will take you to the site which has all the veterinary licenced products listed: then search for the Trade Name of the drug you want information about. Alternatively click Hyperlinks to NOAH Data Sheet Compendium for a list of drugs we commonly prescribe.
If the product prescribed does not have a veterinary data sheet, then the drug information may be found in one of two ways:
- You can search the emc database for the actual drug name itself, e.g. paracetamol, not a Trade Name like “Panadol”.
- You can call us and request a BSAVA Client Leaflet on the medicine (please note not all medicines have a BSAVA information leaflet, although most of the commonly used ones do).
We hope this means no-one need struggle to find any information about any product we have advised using to treat your pet. Please remember: we are here to help so do talk to us rather than worrying. Thanks
