Abstract
The Bureau of Veterinary Medicine is responsible for regulating the use of animal drugs and of feed additives by livestock producers to ensure their safe and effective use in treating, preventing, and controlling disease in food producing animals, pet animals, and birds. The Bureau sees that extensive labeling instructions are provided on medicines and additives, regarding hazards to the animals and to the people administering the chemicals. Where applicable, information concerning the time which must be allowed to pass between dosing and slaughtering is provided. The Bureau also maintains a drug reporting system for recording adverse reactions and complaints. Only two reports of adverse effects of a drug user have thus far been reported. The first concerns a veterinarian who swallowed horse worm medicine while stomach tubing horses and had symptoms of nausea and incoordination for 10 days. The other case concerns an employee of a small animal hospital who developed a sensitivity to a flea dip for dogs. (Contract No. 099-74-0098)
