With their training in podiatric pharmacology, podiatrists can intervene at the right time with the proper pharmaceutical treatment.

The Ordre des podiatres du Québec states: "In the exercise of its profession, a podiatrist may use, administer or prescribe drugs. He must do so in accordance with the provisions of the Regulations on drugs a podiatrist may use in the exercise of his profession or administer or prescribe to their patients. "
