Latest edition of the BSAVA Formulary now available

The BSAVA Small Animal Formulary has been one of the Association’s most trusted and highly valued publications for over a quarter of a century. It is the cornerstone of the BSAVA Medicines Suite, which comprises a range of printed, online and app based resources. 

For the 10th edition we have new editors who, together with their editorial panels, have comprehensively reviewed and updated the information. For the first time both Part A: Canine and Feline and Part B: Exotic Pets have been published simultaneously.

Canine and Feline Formulary

The latest edition of the BSAVA Small Animal Formulary, 10th edition – Part A: Canine and Feline sees Fergus Allerton step into the role as Editor-in-Chief. New to this edition are:

  • 13 drug monographs, including those for chemotherapeutic agents

  • 12 drug monographs, including those for celecoxib, maropitant and oxfendazole
  • The use of bold text to indicate products that are authorized for use in one or more of the exotic pet species listed in the monograph. The aim of this feature is to aid clinicians to follow the Prescribing Cascade
