Canine Care in the Doghouse over Drug Claims

The marketer of a canine medication is in the FDA’s doghouse for making drug claims without the agency’s approval. Canine Care makes the online claims that its product, Tumexal, “is effective against a wide array of canine cancers” and “will almost always restore a cancer-stricken dog’s appetite, spirit and energy.” But such treatment claims are reserved for FDA-approved drugs and Tumexal does not hold that distinction, the agency said in a recent warning letter advising Canine Care to drop the claims or else face potential enforcement action.
