Health Tip: Report a Problem With Pet Medication

If your pet's medication comes with a broken seal or a leaking bottle, you should report these and similar issues to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at once, the agency asks.

Here's how the FDA says you can file a report:

  • Call the drug company directly if you are reporting a bad reaction or product defect. Drug companies are required to report all instances of these problems to the FDA.
  • If you prefer, you can submit the form FDA 1932a, "Veterinary Adverse Experience, Lack of Effectiveness or Product Defect Report" directly to the agency.
  • Reports should be thorough, including a good medical history, a veterinarian's report, foods and treats given to your pet, and the names and amounts of all drugs, supplements or vitamins that the animal was given.
