Zolvix: change of legal category

The VMD has agreed to a request from the manufacturer (Elanco) to change the legal distribution category of Zolvix 25 mg/ml Oral Solution, an anthelmintic for sheep, from POM-V to POM-VPS. Zolvix¬† is authorised for the treatment and control of gastro-intestinal nematode infections and associated diseases of sheep. From 1st July 2017, Zolvix can be prescribed by pharmacists and SQPs. AMTRA will shortly be announcing addtional training (CPD) for farm-animal SQPs to ensure they are up to date with the latest advice from SCOPS and COWS on resistance and parasite control. AMTRA will write to all its farm-animal SQPs with details very soon. More information from VMD…
