Anesthesia: drug interactions

obovis

Synonym(s): Pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics
 


Introduction

  • Multiple drug therapy is common in veterinary practice, but due to cattle being food-producing animals we are often limited in the drugs that we can administer.
  • Drug interaction may result in a loss of activity, an increase in activity or an increase in the side-effects or toxicity of a drug.
  • Drug interactions can be physical, pharmacodynamic or pharmacokinetic.
