Disposing of Prescription Medications

Thank you for disposing of your prescription medications appropriately! Due to legal changes, we can no longer accept donated medications that have been dispensed for patients. We very much appreciate your intentions. To safely dispose of your pet’s unused medications, you may choose one of the following methods:

1. The State Trooper Barracks in Batavia, NY (down the street from our hospital) has a box for medication disposal. All medications are accepted.

2. National & Local Prescription Drug Take Back Events occur regularly at various local locations. These are advertised in local newspapers and on radio stations periodically.

3. You may dispose of certain medications yourself. These medications may be mixed in a closed plastic bag with an absorbent, unpalatable material such as kitty litter, used coffee grounds, or soil. This mixture (in the closed bag) can be mixed with a little water and then be disposed of in household trash.

a. The following medications SHOULD NOT be disposed of using this method and must be brought to the Trooper Barracks:

  1. Phenobarbitol
  2. Alprazolam (Xanax)
  3. Tramadol
  4. Hydrocodone
  5. Proin
