    Resources & Downloads
     
   

We offer a rich library of resources available for direct download and online use. Included on this page are a large number of drug dosing charts.

As always, please let us know if you cannot find what you need on the site. We will either direct you to a suitable resource or create one for you.

If you have material that you would like to see added to our library please contact the webmaster; drstein@vasg.org.

     
     
    Drug Dose Charts
     
   

Drug dose charts are meant to be a convenience and safety enhancement measure. Staff members can use the chart to find the correct drug volume for a patient of a given size.

These charts should be printed in color then placed in plastic sheet protectors and organized alphabetically in a binder.

As a point of clarification, the mere fact that a dose chart is in our library does not mean that the VASG wholeheartedly embraces that particular product, combination of products, or application in all clinical settings.

Our goal is to improve the quality of life and longevity of animal family members while making life easier for veterinary professionals. We acknowledge that there are professionals in practice settings that limit the availability of drugs and equipment. We embrace the challenges faced by veterinary professionals in limited settings be it a housecall practice in Rwanda, spay neuter programs in Yucatán, or anywhere else across the globe.
