Hooray for the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine! I wanted you to see this as you posted in the blog before about the need for veterinary drug information.

The FDA CVM (Food and Drug Administration Center for Veterinary Medicine) has issued a CVM Update regarding new veterinary NSAID information which appears on their website. The veterinary NSAIDs include Rimadyl, Etogesic, Deramaxx, Metacam, Zubrin, Novox, and Previcox. FDA CVM is to be commended for acknowledging that those of us who consider our pets family members desire drug information for them as well, and for alerting the public to the fact that all veterinary NSAIDs come with a FDA CVM approved, manufacturer provided Client Information Sheet which should be provided to pet guardians by veterinarians.

NSAID Page Posted on the CVM Website

FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) has posted a new Veterinary Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) page on the CVM website.

NSAIDs are used to control the pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis. Inflammation - the body's response to irritation or injury - is characterized by redness, warmth, swelling, and pain. NSAIDs work by blocking the production of prostaglandins, the body chemicals that cause inflammation.
