BSAVA Small Animal Formulary 9th Edition PDF – Part A: Canine and Feline
This significant change from previous editions has allowed the editors to provide more details and one or two important references for most of the entries. These references will allow readers to quickly identify suitable literature for further reading when required. Additional references are provided in the online version of the Formulary and we look forward to expanding this resource in the years ahead.
The Formulary should never be used by veterinary surgeons and nurses as the only source of information when they are confronted with a medication with which they are unfamiliar. As well as the references, relevant textbooks such as the excellent series of manuals published by the BSAVA should also be consulted.
Many new drugs have been added and a few drugs have also been deleted whose use is either no longer appropriate or possible. As well as updating the monographs, a new section on the use of glucocorticoids has been added and the guidelines on antibacterials have been revised to align more closely with the PROTECT scheme.
All readers are advised to consult the BSAVA Guide to the Use of Veterinary Medicines and to make sure that their prescribing policies and practices comply with existing guidelines and legislation. Many of the drugs that are listed in this Formulary are not authorized for use in animals.
Authorized products should be considered first for every patient. If drugs that are not authorized for veterinary use are going to be used when there is an alternative that is higher in the prescribing cascade then there should be a clear clinical justification made on an individual basis and recorded in the clinical notes or on the prescription.
