Adverse drug interactions of importance in veterinary practice
  1. PE Reilly and
  2. JP Isaacs


Multiple drug therapy is often used in veterinary practice; occasionally, inappropriate combinations of drugs may be administered which interact to produce adverse responses. Such interactions may occur in vitro because of physically or chemically incompatible drugs having been mixed before administration or in vivo. A number of important in vitro incompatibilities concerning parenteral drugs are tabulated, consideration having been given both to problems attending the use of intravenous fluids as vehicles for their administration and to incompatibilities between the drugs themselves. Interactions which occur in vivo are also examined; these have been grouped according to the various mechanisms by which they occur.
