Suspension of Veterinary Medicines containing the excipient Diethanolamine (DEA)

27th July 2018

We have been advised by the VMD that it has suspended products for food-producing animals that contain the excipient diethanolamine (DEA).

This covers that following list of products on the Farmacy site.

Allevinix 50 mg/ml Solution for Injection for Cattle, Pigs and Horses
Cronyxin Injection, 5% w/v Solution for Injection
Finadyne 50 mg/ml Solution for Injection
Flunixin 50 mg/ml Solution for Injection for Cattle, Horses and Pigs
Meflosyl 5% Solution for Injection
Tribrissen 48% Suspension for Injection

This has been done in the light of the scientific opinion of the Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (the scientific advisory committee to the European Medicines Agency) that there may be a risk to humans from consuming food from animals treated with products containing DEA.

We have very limited stock of some of the products listed, so please call to check availability.
