Zolvix 25 mg/ml Oral Solution for Sheep: change of distribution category

Change of distribution category from POM-V to POM-VPS

 

The VMD has agreed to a request from the Marketing Authorisation Holder to change the legal distribution category of this anthelmintic (i.e. wormer) for sheep. This means that this anthelmintic can now be prescribed by Pharmacists and Suitably Qualified Persons (SQPs) as well as vets.

Increasing the availability of this anthelmintic will help it to be incorporated into strategic worm control programmes on farms in line with nest practice guidance on worm control. This could result in long term health benefits for sheep, for example by reducing the development and spread of anthelmintic resistance, thereby prolonging the effective use of anthelmintic.
