We prescribe medications for our patients every day. We choose the best medication for your loved one based on the individual patient, the disease condition being treated, the safety of the medication, and the availability. We realize, however, that no matter how safe a medication has proven to be, adverse effects can occur in an individual patient. Some of these side effects have the potential to be severe and even life-threatening.

It is important to contact your veterinarian immediately if you suspect that your pet is having an adverse reaction to a medication. This library will be a resource for you to learn more about the medications prescribed in our practice. This page is a work-in-progress, but our hope is to continue to compile information sheets for the most commonly prescribed medications in our practice.

If you have any questions about the information contained in this library, please contact us.
