Dear Daisy Dog

I am in nursing school, and while researching a report I’m writing on disposal of expired and unused medications, I found your Web site.

I read your article on the importance of not flushing drugs down the toilet. You offered several alternatives for safe drug disposal.

My research identified an additional resource: www.earth911.org/hazardous/medications. Just enter your zip code, and the Web site will direct you to organizations that accept and properly dispose of unwanted medications.

Daisy Responds

Thanks for your suggestion. Nurses are some of the smartest people I know.

Your www.earth911.org Web site directs visitors to organizations that accept and dispose of all kinds of things, from automotive fluids, batteries, compact fluorescent light bulbs and electronics, to paint, pesticides and tires.

Christopher Cat and I are pleased our Web site helped you research your nursing school project. The site, www.askthevetspets.com, contains over 700 pages of replies to questions from animal people -– as well as nursing students with helpful suggestions.

A page of links to other reliable Web sites is included to round out the site’s usefulness as a research tool. As always, your most valuable resource is your pet’s veterinarian.
