What does FDA approval mean?

October 4, 2016 Category: Trifexis® (spinosad + milbemycin oxime)

Trifexis® (spinosad + milbemycin oxime) is a prescription product approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) that should only be obtained through a licensed veterinarian with whom you have a proper vet-client-patient relationship (VCPR).

The FDA is responsible for protecting public health by regulating human and animal drugs. In order for your veterinarian to prescribe Trifexis, it first had to be rigorously tested and proven safe to the FDA’s satisfaction when used according to label directions. That means before it went to market, the FDA reviewed and approved Trifexis as safe for use in dogs when used according to product labeling.
