Controlled Substance/DEA Resources

Controlled substances are classified and overseen by the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and veterinarians who administer, dispense or prescribe controlled substances are overseen by the DEA Office of Diversion Control. Controlled substances are carefully monitored by both the DEA and the California Veterinary Medical Board (VMB) and thus veterinary practices must comply with several laws and regulations in order to properly manage them.

Examples of compliance efforts include DEA registration for practitioners, employee background checks, biennial inventory sheets, dispensation logs, special prescription requirements, enhanced security measures for storage, and more.

The CVMA has an extensive library of resources for CVMA members to access to the right.
