Statement from the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) June 2022

1st June 2022

SCOPS highlights this message from the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD).

"OP dip is only authorised for use as a plunge dip. This means OP dip should not be used via any other administration method (e.g. via a shower, jetter or sprayer). The VMD's Enforcement Team will take action in response to any reported cases of unauthorised administration, or the sale or promotion of OP dip for use via an unauthorised administration method. This may include referral of such cases for disciplinary consideration by the RCVS or SQP registration body, as appropriate. The VMD has taken enforcement action in line with its Enforcement Strategy against those cases reported to date."
