Get involved with Pet Dental Health Month and help pet owners understand the importance of looking after the teeth of their furry friends

Prescribing non-registered pharmaceuticals comes with a greater risk as they are not subject to the same rigorous testing as registered medicines, which means they may carry greater risks when treating animals.

Proposed changes from the federal budget are likely to have serious consequences for vet students and the profession.
