Side effects from veterinary medicines

Updated 15 September 2017

Any suspected side effects from veterinary medicinal products should be reported to the Danish Medicines Agency. This includes known and unknown adverse reactions. If a human experiences an unintended reaction after contact with a veterinary medicinal product, it should also be reported to the Danish Medicines Agency.

The report must be based on suspected side effects. Consequently, we do not expect an evaluation of the causal relationship between use of the medicinal product and the unintended reaction. The Danish Medicines Agency makes this evaluation.
