Müntener, Cedric R; Kupper, Jacqueline; Naegeli, Hanspeter; Gassner, B (2017). Vigilance der Tierarzneimittel: Gemeldete unerwünschte Wirkungen im Jahr 2016. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 159(11):581-585.

Abstract

A total of 253 reports of adverse reactions to veterinary medicinal products were received during the year 2016 representing a decrease of 13% compared to the previous year (292 reports). The majority of the reports described reactions affecting companion animals (178 dogs and 32 cats) as well as cattle (17 reports) and horses (10 reports). Most of the reactions reported were linked to the use of antiparasitics (145 reports), hormone products (26 reports) and antiinfectives (10 reports). 32 reports were generated from consultations with Tox Info Suisse in Zurich and involved mainly the excessive intake of flavoured tablets and, in some cases, the use of reconverted products (applied to another species than that authorized). Five signals were identified from the reports, which resulted in revisions of the product information in the sections addressing contraindications or adverse reactions.
