HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Starting the New Year always means talking about our resolutions for the upcoming year. Last year my resolution was to lose 15 pounds. Unfortunately, I only missed that goal by 20 pounds.

Controlled Substance Waiver
In the October Issue of the IVMA Update, a series of Frequently Asked Questions were presented about “Vet Shopping and Drug Diversion”. This information was shared after the IVMA was notified of a number of cases of suspicious use of a pet’s medication by clients. One step clinics can take to help protect against the possibility of a “vet shopper” is to have clients sign a waiver of liability and responsibility. This document informs the client of their responsibilities when a controlled substance is prescribed.
With help from the IVMA legal counsel, a Controlled Substance Waiver was developed for use by IVMA members. The form should be completed by the clinic and the client when a controlled substance is prescribed to a patient. A copy should be given to the client and retained in the client’s file. To access the Controlled Substance Waiver form, click the on Resources tab, then Public Health.
