 Good practice principle added

Posted May 15, 2001

Another principle of good practice was added to the AVMA Guidelines for Veterinary Practice Facilities, to address storage and dispensing of drugs. The Executive Board approved the addition, recommended by the Council on Veterinary Service.

The additional principle calls for "Appropriate facilities and records for the proper storage and dispensing of drugs and supplies in compliance with federal and state laws."

To request a copy of the new guidelines, contact Cindy Coy, ext 273, at AVMA headquarters.
