In reference to economics iin LA medicine, why would you use one drug over another, even if the one you decide on is more expensive? Drug cost is of little importance. The most important thing to think about is THE WITHHOLD TIME of the animal. A more expensive drug, may be cheaper in the long run b/c of a short withdraw time.
what else should you consider when prescribing a drug for LA if drug cost is relatively minor? efficacy of the drug; dosing interval of the drug
Which of these would you choose to treat a cow after a DA surgery? No other complications to worry about. Oxytetracycline SID 3 days, $9 Penicillin G BID 3 days, $18 Ceftiofur SID 3 days, $24 ceftiofur b/c no withdraw time
if a cow is really sick, should you worry more about withdraw times or cost of the drug? cost of drug; really sick= drop in production anyway

when is a human drug not allowed for use in veterinary medicine? When a drug meant for use in veterinary medicine is available
what is required in the records to prescribe out an extra-label drug? Client name; Animals being treated; Disease being treated; Drug name and active component; Keep records for a min of 2 years; Veterinarian’s name and address; Name of drug; Dosing information; Cautionary statements; withdrawal

if a foal is sick, what should you assume it is sick with? septicemia
newborn foals will become infected with what type of bacteria? pathogens from normal horse environment; NOT SUPERANTIGENS
If you see a mare that has just foaled with a distended udder, what should you assume? foal is sick and not nursing (not, the mare is producing a lot of milk)
