February 8, 2011
Do Alberta veterinarians have to use TPP forms?
Yes, Alberta veterinarians must adhere to all requirements of the Triplicate Prescription Program. Like physicians and dentists, they must use a triplicate prescription pad when writing prescriptions for all drugs on the current TPP medication list.

Submit to the Triplicate Prescription Program copies of all prescriptions written on TPP prescription forms that you receive and dispense, no matter what drug is involved.
