Evaluate risk based on five classification levels

This tool currently includes more than 25,000+ interactions between frequently used drugs, with new interactions being continually added. To learn more about a classification, click on the blue information icon .

Get clinicially relevant recommendations

Because the Plumb’s drug interaction checker is built specifically for veterinary practice, results include recommendations that are actually relevant to dogs and cats.
