Does anyone know of any good veterinary pharmacy resources? I'm currently in pharmacy school, and none of the pharmacy folks have been able to point me towards anything that's very good clinically. I'm looking for something that I would be able to put on a PocketPC, if possible.

Thanks for any help.

Plumb's Veterinary Drug Handbook is great. I don't know if there is a version that is online/downloadable though. What do you need animal dosages for in (human?)pharmacy?

I'd be using it for the animal dosages/indications. Some drugs have completely different indications from animals to humans, as well as different side effects, kinetics, etc.

Depending on what setting a pharmacist works in, they're responsible for some dispensing or compounding of animal medications. Liability comes with that responsibility, so I'd like to know what I'm actually giving out before I do it.

Plumbs is definitely the way to go. Here's a link to the publisher's website for the mobile edition. There's also a pocket sized edition, but I think it's only available through the publisher. I used this book for pharmacology and in clinics I've worked in the doctors alway use it for dosing, side effects, etc. It's a great resource. Good luck!
