Safety and Security Measures

Storing Veterinary Medicines

Veterinary medicines should be protected from changes in temperature, sunlight, dust, moisture, animals, and insects.  Store medications in a clean, dry frost-free area. A farm office or utility room may be your most ideal location.  

Use a clean refrigerator to organize and store drugs requiring refrigeration. 

Check product labels for information on

  • storage temperature
  • light sensitivity
  • expiration date

and store accordingly.

Discard expired products as recommended by the product manufacturer. Secure the storage units to prevent access by unauthorized individuals.
