Now a controlled Substance in Ohio

One of the more commonly prescribed medications for pain management, Tramadol, is now considered a controlled substance in Ohio.  This means that the supply of Tramadol is now being closely monitored due to the potential for abuse.  This means that we will need to be even more strict with prescribing guidelines for this commonly used pain medication.  

Fortunately, you will not notice much of a change.  Our inventory and controlled substances department anticipated change about two years ago.  As a result, we have been treating Tramadol as a controlled substance since that point.  


This is just another example of how we remain vigilant and on the cutting edge of veterinary medicine.
