Warning About Veterinary Anthelmintics
The Federal Food and Drug Administration has issued a notice to manufacturers of veterinary anthelmintics and users of the preparations that all known effective anthelmintics are more or less toxic to animals. These preparations should not be administered to sick, physically weak or undernourished animals unless on the advice of a veterinarian. The Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act requires that drugs be labeled with adequate directions for use and adequate warnings against misuse. It defines as misbranded drugs which are dangerous to health when used in accordance with the direction provided in the labeling. To avoid conflict with the requirements of the act, these provisions should be given careful consideration.
