Veterinary surgeons in Austria are authorized to run an in-house veterinary pharmacy (dispensary) at their clinics to supply animals under their care or treated by other veterinarians working in their clinics. The legal framework for running a veterinary pharmacy comprises numerous regulations and directives associated with the purchase, storage, manufacturing, recording, labelling, use and supply of drugs. The present article reviews the current legal position. The authors also discuss regulations that, in their opinion, should be amended by the authorities.
