AVMA announces Veterinary Compounding Legislation task force

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) announced last week it has selected eight volunteer veterinarians to serve on a task force that will advocate for federal legislation and regulations addressing veterinary compounding needs. 

The new task force on Veterinary Compounding Legislation will lead a national dialogue among veterinarians, pharmacists, drug manufacturers and the Food and Drug Administration to determine how they can work together to ensure veterinary compounding is done safely and effectively. 

The AVMA selected the task force members based on their knowledge of existing compounding policies and regulations, familiarity with practical aspects of using compounded medications, and expertise in the compounding needs of practitioners. They represent a wide range of veterinary medicine, including small animal, equine, exotics, food animal, zoo and wildlife, and pharmacology.
