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.
