Fear Over Prohibited Livestock Medication

Fear Over Prohibited Livestock Medication
Critically endangered vultures in the country are still in jeopardy of contact to the anti-inflammatory medication diclofenac, through widespread prohibited sales of the medication.
The Indian administration barred the medication for veterinarian use in the year 2006 after it brought vultures near end.
Vultures were being poisoned after consuming the remains of cattle that had been treated with diclofenac.
The fabrication of the medication for human usages is still permitted.
A research issued during August in the journal Oryx showed that the ban is being unnoticed.
The group carried out appraisals of over 250 veterinary and general drugstores in 11 Indian states between the year 2007 and 2010.
Diclofenac was sold in 36% of drugstores, with around 45% of inquired pharmacies selling the drug in western and central Indian states.
The research stated, "Circumvention of the 2006 diclofenac ban is being achieved by illegally selling forms of diclofenac manufactured for human use for veterinary purposes."
The research accompanies outcomes released during the month of May that cattle remains in the country contaminated with diclofenac dropped more than 40% between 2006 and 2008.
Chris Bowden of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds said, "There has been some progress but diclofenac is still present at levels that will drive vultures extinct."
