The following products were seized by a VMD inspector during a routine inspection, as they are unauthorised veterinary medicines:

  • 5 x Lidor 20mg/ml (bottles)
  • 5 x Dilaterol Clenbuterol Syrup for Horses (sachets)

Lidor 20mg/ml is a local anaesthetic containing the active Lidocaine for use in horses, cats and dogs which does not hold a UK authorisation.

The UK authorised version of Dilaterol Syrup for horses is classified as POM-V and is used as a respiratory treatment for horses. The Dilaterol sachets show only the product name and it is not possible to identify the manufacturer or product details.

These are not UK authorised products and therefore this is an offence under regulation 26 (Possession of an unauthorised veterinary medicinal product) of the Veterinary Medicines Regulations 2013.
