Please read the notice from the Alabama Department of Public Health regarding changes to the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program. Your Alabama Veterinary Medical Association recently solicited, as part of a public rule-making hearing, the PDMP officials to change the reporting requirement for veterinarians from weekly to monthly. We were successful in obtaining this less stringent reporting change for veterinarians at a time other medical practitioners are being required to report daily. If you have any questions about this, please let the ALVMA office or me know.
