Abstract

This Administrative Order, consisting of 11 sections and six Annexes, and pursuant to R.A. No. 3720, establishes Rules and Regulations to implement prescribing requirements for the veterinary drugs and products. Prior to the Generics Act of 1988, the following general guidelines on prescribing have been operative: Only duly-licensed veterinarians, whether in private practice or employed in a private institution/corporation or in the government, are authorized to prescribe drugs. Prescribing by unauthorized persons constitutes illegal practice of veterinary medicine punishable under R.A. 382 or the Veterinary Practice Act. In accordance with R.A. 5921, or the Pharmacy Act as amended, all prescriptions (Annex G) must contain specific following information. In addition to the above requirements the following shall be included: professional registration number, professional tax receipt number, patient’s/client’s name, date of prescription, species and number of animal treated and: name (in generic), strength, unit size and quantity of the veterinary drug product to be delivered/dispensed.
