On Tuesday, May 19, 2015 the Food and Drug Administration released a new proposed guidance document that explains its enforcement policies related to the compounding of veterinary preparations using bulk ingredients. This guidance document, published in The Federal Register as CVM GFI #230 is a draft document. It does not become enforceable or “official” until a comment period is completed and a final version is issued.

The pharmacy profession as well as other stakeholders has 90 days to review and submit comments and questions.

The International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) has prepared a summary for you that contains key information on the veterinary compounding with bulk ingredients draft guidance document.

This proposal will hurt pets, pet owners, veterianrian and compounding pharmacy. Our state already has regulations for "office use" compounding which are very strict and now the FDA is replacing the state regulations, unnecessary. We help veterinarians help treat their patients. Also, the use of bulk chemicals gives the compounder a more pure chemical to work with so that fillers, lubricants, food colors and other ingredients will not harm the internal systems of animals, which cannot take certain chemicals and will harm them.
