Action plan for vulture conservation in India, 2020‐2025

This Action Plan for Vulture Conservation in India, 2020-2025, rightly advocates the prevention of misuse of veterinary non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) by ensuring their sale only on prescription. This would ensure that banned drugs are not used in veterinary treatment. The plan also strongly recommends that the veterinary treatment should be given only by qualified veterinarians which would prevent overuse of NSAIDs in treating livestock as toxicity of most of the drugs is dose dependent.
