French to English translations [PRO]
Agriculture / Small ruminant farming
French term or phrase: dans le cadre de la cascade
This is from a passage about small ruminants and the fact that there's very little medicine available that's intended just for them. Can anyone tell me what the « dans le cadre de la cascade » bit means?

Ainsi, les vétérinaires praticiens sont souvent réduits à prescrire « dans le cadre de la cascade », à partir d’un arsenal thérapeutique principalement conçu pour d’autres espèces (les bovins essentiellement) ou d’autres pathologies, sans validation de la recherche et sous la seule responsabilité du vétérinaire praticien vis-à-vis des assurances.

Thanks!

one product after another


Explanation:
Given the context that would make sense - no specific drugs for those animals so they try one after another from the "therapeutic arsenal".

by way of diffusion


Explanation:
i.e. diffusion from the veterinary medicine for one species to use in another species. Much the way that adult medicines are used in smaller doses for children - a practice that has come under serious question.
