CAT OWNERS: Ketamine Recall Expanded

Friday, January 8th, 2010

Teva Animal Health’s original Ketamine recall has been expanded to include these seven private labels:

  • Fort Dodge Ketaset
  • VEDCO KetaVed
  • AmTech Group Inc. Ketamine Hydrochloride Injection, USP
  • Butler KetaThesia
  • Phoenix Ketaject
  • LLOYD Laboratories VetaKet
  • RXV Keta-Sthetic

If your cat is due for surgery, verify with your veterinarian that the products she/he is using are not on the recall list.  Some of the lot numbers for these products are not part of the recall.
