Every veterinary practice in the UK will receive a free 2017 edition of the NOAH Compendium of Data Sheets for Animal Medicines.\n\nThe NOAH Compendium is also available online at www.noahcompendium.co.uk. It\u00a0was launched as a smartphone app in November 2016. The book remains an information source for busy vets in practice and other prescribers and users of animal medicines. A special edition of the book for SQPs, commissioned by AMTRA, will be also available shortly.\n\nThe data sheets can be easily accessed through colour-coded indexes and the book includes the latest edition of NOAH\u2019s Code of Practice for the Promotion of Animal Medicines.\n\nNOAH chief executive Dawn Howard said: \u201cThe NOAH Compendium in all its formats is a major part of NOAH\u2019s efforts to assist the appropriate and responsible use of all animal medicines.\n\n\u201cEvery NOAH member, as well as the non-member participants in the NOAH Compendium, is a signatory to the NOAH Code of Practice on Promotion, which demonstrates their commitment to operate above and beyond any regulatory requirements.\n\n\u201cAs well as product datasheets, the Compendium includes another vital resource \u2013 the contact details for each participating company. Company veterinary and technical advisors have detailed knowledge about their company\u2019s medicines.\n\n\u201cThey are ready to talk to prescribers about the use of a medicine in a particular animal or in a particular situation, as well as to explain any queries about the data sheet,\u201d she said.
