Veterinary Medicines Directorate

Today we filmed at the Veterinary Medicines Directorate who authorise and regulate medicines for use in all animals, including dogs. They are also responsible for ensuring that these medicines are stored and used correctly, and monitor reports of adverse affects and inefficacy.

We spoke to CEO Peter Borriello about the work of the VMD in general, Giles Davis about adverse event reporting, to Matthew Isted about the Internet Accreditation Scheme which seeks to ensure the safety of medicines bought online, and also to Abigail Seager about the Product Information Database which contains detailed information about all currently and previously authorised products.

A huge amount of very useful information coming your way, watch this space!
