dc.description.abstract In this paper, I offer an evaluation of the off-label use of Acepromazine Maleate by foxhunters. In Chapter One, I provide readers with an explanation of the most important elements of the topic, including what Acepromazine Maleate is, the nature of its off-label use, and how the Animal Medicinal Drug Use Clarification Act of 1994 affects the off-label use of the drug. I also offer readers a roadmap of the remainder of the paper, and I conclude Chapter One with a literature review. In Chapter Two, I examine how the Food and Drug Administration regulates animal drugs, as well as how it handles the off-label use of drugs in animals. In Chapter Three, I consider the off-label use of Acepromazine Maleate, analyzing the physiological effects of the drug, its labeled uses, side effects, as well as its off-label uses. In doing so, I take into account the perspectives of both foxhunters and veterinarians. In Chapter Four, I conclude the paper by offering an assessment of the off-label use of Acepromazine Maleate by foxhunters. I argue that although the drug is currently being used by foxhunters with great frequency, it is also being used by foxhunters with great precaution, making it, in the vast majority of cases, both safe and effective. Veterinarians, however, need to do more on their end to comply with Food and Drug Administration regulations and labeling requirements, to ensure that this level of safety does not drop. en
