I'm not sure why more people don't use NOAH - National Office of Animal Health - to look up information about medicines.  It doesn't cover every single one, but I look at it several times a week - mainly answering questions for TASers. ;)   It's really easy to use and very easy to understand.

Normally I google 'NOAH <drug?>' or 'NOAH <active ingredient>' and take it from there.

I agree Plums. I found it earlier myself this week when looking up Fasinex.
Sally I think the reason others haven't used it is that like me (until recently) they didn't know it existed.
thanks for posting.

Or: if you order meds online, you should be able to read the info sheet for the drug concerned on the webpage.

You won't find Norbrook products on there though...but you can find a dedicated compendium on the Norbrook website.

It's a brilliant resource but it's not widely known about as it's use is intended for vets & veterinary nurses & I along with other compendiums have it because of being a veterinary nurse myself & I would urge you all to ALWAYS consult your vet before buying or using any drugs for any conditions on any of your animals x.

 

A few questions i hope you can answer
