Safeguards are needed to prevent veterinary medications from getting into the hands of children, according to a study of documented cases at the Central Ohio Poison Center. The retrospective analysis included reported exposures from 1999 through 2013 involving anyone aged 19 years or younger. The facility fielded a total of 1,431 related calls during the study period, most of which concerned children aged 5 years or younger. Veterinary drugs with no human equivalent, antimicrobials, and antiparasitics were the most common agents; ingestion was the most likely route of exposure; and curiosity was the primary driver of the behavior. While exposures generally were not expected to produce long-term health effects, the findings suggest a need for greater public awareness as well as appropriate dispensing and home storage practices for animal medications.
