NOTE: As of March 23 - NYSVMS is pushing new legislation to:
a) Extend implementation to 2024
b) Make it clear that the law does not apply to surgery or other in-house treatmentsOn May 15th a new law will go into effect requiring veterinarians to disclose side-effects.
The full text of the bill can be found here: S1289 A4978
The other information that the new bill requires are very similar to the existing prescribing and dispensing requirements in the NY Pharmacy Laws:
- The name and the description of the drug
- Directions for use
- If available, manufacturers instructions for proper storage*
- If available, manufacturer precautions and relevant warnings*
We will showcase two companies that have experience helping veterinarians in California to comply with a similar law there:
- Plumbs Veterinary
Our Government Relations Counsel will also join us to provide some background on the law and our best guess about any additional regulations that may go into effect with the law.
After the presentations there will be plenty of time for discussion and questions.
