Veterinarians routinely face the risk of direct exposure to hazardous drugs. This can occur while treating house pets or large animals with veterinary pharmaceuticals such as antineoplastic and other hazardous drugs.
Exposure can occur during all stages of treatment from compounding to administering and disposing of drug residue. Exposure to antineoplastic drugs poses a health risk to veterinarians, clinic staff and animal owners
