Preface to the Sixth Edition
in this edition, Plumb’s Veterinary Drug Handbook
continues to evolve with the addition of more
drugs, more types of drugs (topical dermatology
drugs), and a new look; however, the basic premise
remains to serve as a single volume reference to
assist veterinarians, other health professionals, and
animal caretakers in providing optimal drug therapy
for veterinary patients. the changes to this edition
include a new design and layout; the addition of
75 new drug monographs; updates to the older
monographs, with a listing for rapid-scanning for
potential drug interactions and overdose information
for 50 drugs from the AsPCA Animal Poison Control
Center; and new sections on topical dermatologic
agents and products, Principles of Compounding
Ophthalmic Products, and Overdose and toxin
exposure decontamination Guidelines in the
appendix.
