Müntener, Cedric R; Kupper, Jacqueline; Naegeli, Hanspeter; Gassner, B (2019). Vigilance der Tierarzneimittel: Gemeldete unerwünschte Wirkungen im Jahr 2017. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 161(2):107-112.

Abstract

A total of 306 reports of adverse reactions to veterinary medicinal products were received during the year 2017 representing an increase of 21% compared to the previous year. The majority of these reports described reactions concerning companion animals (180 dogs and 59 cats) as well as cattle (38 reports) and horses (14 reports). Most of the reported reactions were linked to the use of antiparasitics (158 reports), hormone products (30 reports) and anti-inflammatory products (25 reports). 40 reports were generated from consultations with Tox Info Suisse in Zürich and mainly involved the excessive intake of flavoured tablets and, in some cases, the use of products under the cascade regulation (applied to another species than that authorized). Nine signals were identified from the reports, resulting in revisions of the product information in the sections addressing contra-indications or adverse reactions.
