A course in veterinary pharmacology with emphasis on the pharmacology of drugs affecting various body systems including digestive, endocrine, ocular, respiratory, central nervous, cardiovascular, or musculoskeletal. Drugs that produce analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties also are included.

The course is being revised to comply with current needs of our veterinary students.  Course title and description more accurately reflect content. Review coincides with updates for VMB 933 to ensure they flow from one to another.

Faculty teach this course as part of their normal responsibilities.

Course will provide the students with basic principles of pharmacology and a knowledge of important drug classes used to treat diseases in animals.  The course expands on what was learned in VMB 933 - Pharmacology I in the previous semester (as well as other courses earlier in the DVM curriculum), building upon the foundations of basic pharmacology as it relates to animal patients. 


Student Learning Outcomes

Students will learn the following outcomes:



  • How to recognize the important pharmacologic features of drugs that affect the endocrine system. 

  • How to interpret the use of agents that affect the autacoid system (histamine, serotonin, peptides, prostaglandins)

  • How to apply the use of important analgesic and anti-inflammatory agents to treating conditions in animals.

  • To recognize the major drugs used to treat disorders of kidneys, cardiovascular system, nervous system, respiratory system, and digestive system.

  • To apply the knowledge of adverse drug reaction and drug interactions to medications used in animals.

  • Students should be able to describe the regulatory process for drugs in animals

This is a newly organized course. Dr. Chris McGahan is listed as course-coordinator for now because she is the department head. However, when a permanent course coordinator is identified, this will be updated.

mlnosbis 8/21/2017:
1) Office hours on syllabus state 8:00am-7:00pm Monday-Friday. Please include more accurate office hours.
2) Reviewers should note that 13 weeks is standard for DVM courses.

pjharrie 9/1/2017 - The first sentence in the course objectives, really is a requirement, not an objective, and I think that overall they could be fleshed out a bit more. Although this is admittedly picky, I don't think the description needs to repeat 'system' after each one as it's already been stated that the course will cover 'systems including'. It's also not quite clear to me what the rationale is for including people as instructors or not - 'Papiche' is noted on the Class Schedule, but isn't on the list. In the syllabus, a bit more description of the tests would be helpful. They don't seem to be cumulative based on the comment about the Final Exam. Also, not quite sure why 'Quiz(zes)' are even noted as there are only exams.

Kirk's replies:
> Removed First sentence of course objectives and fleshed out a bit. Please advise if more needed.
> Removed repetitive systems in course description.
> Papich is more of a placeholder than instructor. He was coordinator of VMB 943 Pharm II but will now coordinate VMB 933 Pharm I instead. Dr. McGahan, as Dept Head of MBS, will identify his replacement in the coming months. Dr. Papich revised course so that it would ready for new coordinator. New syllabus with full faculty roster and who will be presenting each topic will be created for student's once new coordinator identified. Office Hours for coordinator will be updated once established as well.
> Our syllabus template defaults to "Test/Quiz" in the title regardless of which are being offered in the course. Quiz has been removed and more specifics about tests on what topics covered has been added to syllabus.
