Suspected adverse reactions, 2004
Reports to the UK Suspected Adverse Reaction Surveillance Scheme (SARSS) in 2004 increased by 22 per cent compared with 2003
The number of reports involving dogs, cats and cattle increased, while there were fewer reports involving sheep and rabbits
A suspected lack of efficacy in cattle was largely responsible for the significant increase in the overall total number of reports for this species
Fewer human suspected adverse reactions were reported in 2004 than 2003
– These are some of the findings under the SARSS in 2004, as discussed in the following article by Fabia Dyer, Rahel Mulugeta, Martha Spagnuolo-Weaver and Alex Tait of the Veterinary Medicines Directorate
