Pet Rescue Scam PDF Print E-mail
Editor’s Note: The following was reported to the NYSVMS and LIVMA from the Massachusetts VMA.

Recently, in Massachusetts, an individual who identifies himself as Richard Roy, from A.R.F. — The Animal Recovery Forum — has been going to veterinary practices and asking to place countertop donation boxes, with candy, in the reception areas. People who buy the candy are led to believe the money goes to help fund reuniting lost pets with their families.

Mr. Roy provides a letter to each practice which claims that “ARF is not a charity. We are not soliciting donations. Purchase of candy does not constitute a charitable donation. It is our intent to increase our involvement and grow this program in our community, together with the assistance of committed businesses like yours.”

NYSVMS News Bulletin

Controlled Substance Law Updates

Tramadol is a muscle relaxant that can be addictive. Although not approved for use in animals by the Food and Drug Administration, it is legally prescribed by veterinarians as an extra label drug. Along with hydrocodone and oxycodone, abuse of Tramadol has exploded in the last few years.

As of Feb. 23, 2013, Tramadol is a controlled substance (Schedule IV) in New York State. Commonly prescribed by veterinarians, for pain management, in dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, and horses, Tramadol (Ultram®, Ultacet®, Ryzolt™) is now a Schedule IV controlled substance, in New York.

Due to New York state’s recent “I STOP Law,” which was passed in order to greater curb prescription painkiller abuse, there are some new requirements veterinarians need to know in reference to prescribing this medication.
