Benefits of pet vaccination
recognised by independent committee

the prevention and control of major infectious diseases and strongly supports their use.

Products Committee (VPC) Working Group on Feline and Canine Vaccination into the
issues surrounding the routine vaccination of cats and dogs.
The VPC working group considered a number of issues including the

particular concern and has already been instrumental in setting up an interdisciplinary
expert working group specifically looking into this issue.

those recommended by the manufacturer and approved by the regulatory process. However, it
emphasised the fact that vaccination should be an individual medical decision made by the

regimes will be based on a minimum duration of immunity rather than a maximum.

Pet GSL medicines
not under EU threat
Following the publication on 27 January 2002
of a misleading article in the Sunday Telegraph, which wrongly implied that all animal
medicines would be restricted to being Prescription-Only (POM), there is some concern that
GSL pet medicines' future is threatened.
Contrary to what appeared in the newspaper article
|the proposal from the European Commission to move to POM applies to farm livestock only
(including horses) but not pets.
|it is a proposal only, and far from agreed - the UK government is opposed, as are many
|even if the proposal were agreed, it would not take effect until at least 2005.
The proposal from the European Commission is intended to bring the main
medicines directive into line with the directive on residues in meat and milk for human
consumption - it has nothing to do with pet medicines, and will not affect them.
