Abstract:  This article (the first in a series), provides an introduction to the use of transdermal medications in veterinary patients. The author discusses the benefits and risks and bioavailability of transdermal gels. She concludes that the ultimate responsibility for the outcome of therapy with transdermally applied drugs rests primarily with the prescribing veterinarian, as well as with the compounding pharmacist. Until data from scientific studies are available, pharmacists and veterinarians must collaborate to evaluate the benefits and risks of transdermal therapy for each patient.
