After yesterday's ordeal with the compounding pharmacy, we starting thinking to ourselves, why is it that in today's society, we do not insist on having a package insert, the form containing the indications, side effects and other relevant information known about a prescription or non prescription drug, included with all medications prescribed for our pets?
Why do we as a society accept less information on the medications given to our pets? We know full well that medications can cause side effects, so why aren't pet owners informed in a proper manner about the potential side effects? Why are we not provided with all of the relevant information related to the drugs used to treat our animals? Do we simple chose not to be informed? What are your thoughts and opinions on the subject? Should we as responsible pet owners start demanding more information about the drugs prescribed for our pets?
