ROCKVILLE , MD. — The Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Center for Veterinary Medicine posted its Cumulative Adverse Drug Experiences (ADE) Summaries Report, providing veterinarians and animal owners easy access to information about reactions and other signs that have been associated with drugs.

The appropriate use of this information, the FDA says, is to search the active ingredient of a drug to see if particular signs associated with adverse reactions have been reported with the drug's use.

Adverse experiences are listed next to the active ingredient of each drug in the ADE Report. One active ingredient in the list may represent more than one brand name.

The complete list is accessible at http://www.fda.gov/cvm/.
