The FDA recently released potential guidance which specifically includes veterinarians. The guidance document is being distributed for comment and the comment period ends in 90 days.
Prescription requirements from a veterinarian to a state-licensed pharmacy may include verbiage similar to “This patient is not a food-producing animal” and “Compounded drug X would produce a clinical difference for the individually identified animal patient because the approved drug is too large a dose for the animal and cannot be divided or diluted into the small dose required.”
According to the Guidance for Industry document, FDA regulations define “bulk drug substance” as “any substance that is represented for use in a drug and that when used in the manufacturing, processing, or packaging of a drug, becomes an active ingredient or a finished dosage form of the drug, but the term does not include intermediates used in the synthesis of such substances.”

“I believe veterinarians should discuss with their state organization possible comments and suggestions for the draft document before the 90 day comment period runs out.” Dr Olson
