Monitor Pet Medication

The medication given to your pets can be misused. It is important to monitor all medications in your home. Recognizing the signs of substance misuse and "vet shopping" are also important.

The "Count It, Lock It, Drop It" program provides awareness education on the safe handling of prescription medications. Browse their site listed in the resources below to learn more.

 

Unfortunately, many are still unaware humans are misusing medications prescribed to animals as well as the dangers that go along with vet shopping. If you have resources available; spread awareness through community-focused events and social media.
