A survey of 186 pharmacies across Great Britain in 2004 showed that the pharmacists had little involvement in the supply of veterinary medicines. Most of them did not feel competent to be involved in the supply of prescription-only veterinary medicines, but 45 per cent of them expressed an interest in becoming competent, even at significant cost in time and money. The results suggested that the pharmacists had little awareness of the law relating to the supply of veterinary medicines or of their pharmacology.
