All veterinary medicines authorised for use in the UK will continue to be authorised after Brexit and can remain on the market for sale and supply in their existing packaging.

The Veterinary Medicines Directorate is working with the pharmaceutical industry to ensure a no deal scenario has minimal impact on the regulatory burden on the pharmaceutical industry and that the UK remains attractive for the pharmaceutical industry to manufacture and market veterinary medicines.
