Amend The Veterinary Cascade System

374 Signatures Goal: 500

We, the undersigned, believe that the cascade system for prescribing veterinary medicines is inappropriate and overly restrictive for treatment of pet animals (including equines documented as ineligible for meat production) and would call for a review of the system.

Cascade makes prescribing human medicines a criminal offence except in limited circumstances and this has led to the system being abused by some pharmaceutical companies.

The cascade system is placing unnecessary and sometimes irreconcilable demands on veterinary surgeons endeavouring to remain within the law whilst attempting to ensure the best for animal welfare as sworn by oath on admission to the Royal College Of Veterinary Surgeons.

This, we strongly feel is leading to significant difficulties for veterinary surgeons, pet owners and hence subsequent welfare issues for domestic animals.
