Off-Label Medicines: Overview and Settings

This feature is used in the UK market.

Off-label medicines, or medicines under the cascade, are medicines that have not been licensed to be used for a certain species or conditions. However, they may be used at the discretion of the responsible veterinarian where a licensed medicine is not available.

In accordance with UK law, when an off-label medicine is prescribed, a statement will be added to the prescription printout indicating that the medicine is prescribed under the cascade.
