What is a VCPR and why do you need one?
Health Canada requires all antimicrobials used in animals (pets and livestock) to be under the oversight of a registered veterinarian and requires a prescription. A prescription is a direction issued by a registered veterinarian that an animal or group of animals be treated with a specified drug at a specified dose for a specified period of time for treatment of a specified condition. In order to issue a prescription, a veterinarian must document that a valid veterinarian-client-patient-relationship (VCPR) exists.
