Veterinary Medicines Information

You can use the search option above to find information about veterinary medicines authorised by the HPRA. 
Our product database is a comprehensive and up-to-date listing of all veterinary medicines that have been assessed by the HPRA and granted a licence so that they can be marketed in Ireland. Note that veterinary products:

• Authorised by the European Commission under the central-authorisation procedure,
• Authorised by the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine under exceptional provisions of the national legislation, and 
• Not falling within the scope of the legislation on veterinary medicines (e.g. feed additives, biocides) 

may also legally be supplied and used in accordance with national legislation. Note also that even if a product has been granted a marketing authorisation by the HPRA, this does not necessarily mean that the product concerned is available on the Irish market (products that are not commercialised within 3 years must have their authorisations withdrawn however, save for exceptional circumstances).

A Summary of Product Characteristics document (known as an SPC) is provided for each medicine. The SPC details the pertinent information regarding the safety, use, storage and disposal of the product. The SPC is intended to be used by healthcare professionals, while the packaging information and package leaflet are intended for the product user.

December 2021

Search functionality on advanced search function of HPRA’s veterinary medicines website – temporary disruption.

Due to a technical issue, certain advanced search functions (e.g. searching by species) are not currently working in the ‘Search for a Veterinary Medicine’ feature on the HPRA website. This means that although a medicine is indicated for a species, when searching for medicines for that species, the search function may not return the complete listing of authorised medicines for the species concerned.

The HPRA is investigating the cause of the issue and will remedy it as soon as possible. The HPRA apologies for any inconvenience caused while this matter is being addressed.

It is expected that full functionality of the advanced search function will be restored by mid-January 2022.
