BSAVA now has more than 100 drug client information leaflets available for members to download. With eight new additions to the medicine series in the Summer of 2021, the total number of leaflets now stands at 103.
BSAVA began to produce client information leaflets in 2011, to help veterinary practitioners fulfil their obligations to provide information to their clients about the safe use of the drugs they prescribe and dispense for the patients under their care. Over the years, the range of leaflet groups has expanded to include canine and feline behaviour and exotic pets, as well as medicines.
Designed to be printed easily in practice, all the leaflets have the option to add practice details if required. New additions for June 2021 are Antihistamines, Ferrous sulphate, Fluconazole, Hydrochlorothiazide, Imipramine, Leflunomide, Travoprost and Trimethoprim/Sulphonamide, with authors including Polly Frowde, Hannah Hodgkiss-Geere, and Fergus Allerton.
Julian Hoad, Chair of BSAVA Publications Committee said: “We are proud to have hit this impressive milestone; we know that our client information leaflets are of great use to our members to help them keep their clients informed and we aim to add to this number every year.”
The client information leaflets are provided to BSAVA members as part of their member benefits, and are also available for non-members to buy as part of the ‘Formulary Plus’ online subscription. You can find the leaflets in the BSAVA Library.
