Veterinary Medicines

You can report a suspected adverse reaction or lack of efficacy to a veterinary medicine by clicking on the buttons below - this will take you to the online reporting site.

This scheme is run by the VMD's Pharmacovigilance Unit and is used to collect information from veterinary professionals and the general public on suspected adverse reactions and lack of efficacy to veterinary medicines. We collect reports on both licensed and unlicensed veterinary medicines, and human medicines used to treat animals under the cascade. The information that you provide can help to improve the safe and effective use of veterinary medicines.

When you fill in the report you will need to provide basic information about:

  • The name of the product which you think caused the adverse reaction or lack of efficacy.
  • The animal(s) or person(s) in which the adverse reaction or lack of efficacy occured.
  • The signs observed of the adverse reaction or lack of efficacy that is suspected.
  • Your contact details as the reporter of the adverse reaction or lack of efficacy.

You can record this information in the four sections of the reporting screen. It might be useful, although not essential, to have the product, its packaging or the package leaflet that came with it with you when you fill out this report. Your report can be submitted without any additional information, but if you are able to provide further details, these can be added in the final section of the report.
