Prescription medication details.

Researchers can access prescription drug and over-the-counter drug by searching on active and key ingredients, rather than brand or pharmaceutical names. This allows key and active ingredient information searches to be sustainable in the long-term, particularly as brand names change or become generic, as formularies evolve.

Researchers who require drug names from the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study database have the option to submit a request via our Request for Proposals (RFP) process (Golden Retriever Lifetime Study RFP | Morris Animal Foundation). The submitting researcher will receive a follow-up communication from our scientific team following proposal review
