Thank you for an eventful year!

What a year! After four years of intense negotiation, we saw the EU institutions pick up the trilogue discussions with vigour at the beginning of the year, pushing through the legislative texts on veterinary medicines and medicated feed for agreement and final adoption this past autumn. The full impact of these new rules, and whether they have achieved their objectives, is still an open book, but we thank our decision-makers for driving through this important dossier to completion within this legislative term.

6 Ways the EU can lead the way for animal health

2019 sees us move into an election period for the EU. As AnimalhealthEurope we take this opportunity to remind potential candidates and returning officials, that Europe is the birthplace of modern veterinary medicine and is home to the world’s leading animal health companies.
