Pam Mosedale will discuss ‘Prescribing for farm pets’. Most Farm Animal Pets are food producing animals, Prescribing for these animals involves areas unfamiliar to most small animal vets – batch number recording, owners recording requirements, withdrawal times for meat, milk & eggs. The lack of authorised products for some species can be a problem. Farm pets are usually kept singly or in small groups. Most medicines intended for farm species are packaged in large quantities for commercial herds. This webinar will point out the problems & help small animal vets to understand the Veterinary Medicine Regulations for prescribing to food producing animals & compliance with the Cascade & informed consent. Pam qualified from the RVC in 1979 and worked in mixed practice for the first part of her career, then was a partner in a small animal hospital for 17 years. She was a Practice Standards Inspector from the beginning of the BSAVA practice standards scheme and continued with the RCVS scheme, becoming Senior Inspector before moving on to become an independent veterinary investigator. Pam says she loved being a PSS inspector and particularly enjoyed assisting new practices joining the scheme. She has been involved in inspector training and is very keen on consistency of inspections. She has been a member of BSAVA committees and, as a BSAVA representative on the Practice Standards Group for the last few years, she is always keen to encourage feedback from members. Pam is editor of the BSAVA Guide to the Use of Veterinary Medicines, an SQP assessor for AMTRA and still does some locum work in her spare time. She lives in the Peak district with her husband and teenage son, and two very badly behaved dogs!
