The VVMA has joined in an effort to increase the professional and community awareness of the need for safe use, safe storage and safe disposal of prescription medications. In partnership with the Bennington County Prescription Drug Task Force, an information packet created specifically for the veterinary profession was mailed this week to Vermont veterinary clinics, included in the VVMA e-newsletter, and put on our website. It also includes the VVMA’s Veterinary Practice Guide to DEA Regulations. Check it out and join us in our goal of making sure the veterinary profession is aware of how to prevent substance abuse!
