We learned that the “not for collie drug list” applies to a large percentage of herding breeds and a test can be given to test for the gene that some of these dogs are missing which keeps the drugs out of the brain.

The reason I tell you this, is that not all veterinarians are up to date on this, and we need to educate ourselves and them.

Please pass it to all collie and herding group people.

I encourage you to do the research and have the list put in their pet’s medical chart. Give it to your veterinarians.

This list may not be inclusive as new drugs are coming out all the time.

  1. Does anyone know of any sort of side effects after the use of Silymaryn, an extract of the herb called Carduus Mariannus; in Rough Collies? I’ll appreciate any comments about it. Thanks!

  2. I would like to know where this list came from? References? I have used several drugs on this list on all sorts of Collies over the last 50 years. I know Rimadyl is controversial and not just with Collies, but I have never seen it on any “not for Collies” lists. I can’t tell you how many Collies I have given Rimadyl to – it not only helped their pain issues but extended their lives.

  3. I agree with Gayle Kaye. Milbemycin Oxime is interceptor. That one specifically has no place on this list. I would love to see some references. Whenever I have any questions about medications, I look to the Washington State University. The keep the list as up to date as possible.

  4. I see your website needs some fresh content. Writing manually takes a lot of
    time, but there is tool for this time consuming task, search for:
    unlimited content Wrastain’s tools
