Patent Medicines & Liniments<br />
<br />
Located in the FDA History Vault are several samples of so-called patent medicines labeled for both human and veterinary use, what the manufacturers called, “for man or beast." These products date from the late 19th to the mid 20th centuries, before drugs intended for human use or animal use began going through independent approval reviews based on physiology, how drugs act in the body, and on other essential differences between species.
