Elevated storage temperatures and concentration of large animal pharmaceuticals
Keywords:storage temperatures, ambulatory veterinary practice vehicles, drug, upper storage limit
Most veterinary pharmaceuticals are labelled to be stored at or below 77°F or 86°F. Previous work showed that temperatures in ambulatory veterinary practice vehicles exceeded those temperatures for 67-100% of days in the summer of 2013. The project objective was to determine the effect on the active ingredient concentrations of drug products exposed to temperatures above their recommended upper storage limit.
