URGENT: If your pet takes phenobarbital, call your vet!
The FDA has issued an alert for veterinarians concerning the recall of a drug mislabeled as phenobarbital. Phenobarbital is a human drug which is frequently prescribed by veterinarians for off-label uses such as treatment of seizures. If you have phenobarbital for your dog or cat, please call your vet to make sure it is, in fact, what it is supposed to be. Do not give it to your pet until you know it is safe.
