medication delivery
the routes used in medication. See drug administration.
mass medication
the medicament may be administered in the drinking water or in the feed. Mixing with the feed is limited to prophylactic dosing because sick animals rarely eat their feed in adequate amounts. Sick animals are more inclined to keep up their water intake, but still need to be observed to ensure that they are doing this. Animals suspected of not drinking must be treated individually. Special techniques of mass treatment include the laying of palatable baits for wildlife, although this is limited to once-only medications, such as oral vaccines, and aerosol administration, limited to closely confined groups such as chickens.
teratogenic medication
teratogenous effects produced by medication; known agents include methallibure, griseofulvin, cyclophosphamide, folic acid antagonists, parbendazole, corticosteroids, phenytoin, thalidomide, hydroxyzine, metrifonate, hydroxyurea.
medication tube
1. a short esophageal tube used in sheep, perorally, and horses, pernasally, for the administration of medicines.
2. an in situ tube used for the treatment of the eye in horses. See also subpalpebral lavage.
