National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day this Saturday, April 28th

Every year, thousands of pets and children accidentally ingest medications that were not intended for them, often making them very ill or even killing them.

Finally, there’s a better way to dispose of expired or unused drugs than flushing them down the toilet (where they contaminate our water supply), tossing them in the trash, or leaving them to gather dust in the medicine cabinet.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the 4th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day this Saturday, April 28, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Drop-off expired or unused medications (human or pet) at Atlantic Veterinary Hospital through noon this Saturday and we’ll take them to a disposal site for you along with our expired inventory.

Or, check-out the Office of Diversion Control website to find the nearest medication collection sites.

Americans that participated in the DEA’s 3rd National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on October, 2011, turned in more than 188.5 tons of unwanted or expired medications for safe and proper disposal.

Please protect your family, both the two- and four-legged members, and clean out your medicine cabinet.
