New NOAH Compendium now available!

Marking the unveiling of a special 30th anniversary NOAH logo, the 2016 edition of the NOAH Compendium of Data Sheets for Animal Medicines has been published and a free copy sent to each veterinary practice in the UK. This logo is the first in a series of special events to mark the association’s 30 years.

Commenting on the book publication, NOAH Chief Executive Dawn Howard said: “In our digital world, the book remains a welcome and essential information source for busy vets in practice. It is of course fully supported by the free-to-access online edition at, and shortly via the NOAH app.

In the book, the product data sheets can be easily accessed through colour-coded indexes and it includes the latest edition of NOAH’s Code of Practice for the Promotion of Animal Medicines.

The book cover includes a ‘blippar’ link through a smartphone app. Downloading the app and scanning the cover links to useful information such as NOAH’s Pet Health Information website, its video channel and the RUMA (Responsible Use of Medicines in Agriculture Alliance) website, as well as the Talking Medicines site which provides access to further information to aid compliance on certain products.

Mrs Howard said: “This book — along with the online version — is a major part of NOAH’s efforts to help provide prescribers and users of animal medicines with information to assist the appropriate and responsible use of all animal medicines. The online edition is regularly updated— any changes are clearly indicated to signpost prescribers and users and help ensure best practice.”

If a veterinary practice has not received its free copy, perhaps because they are a new practice, or have changed address in the past year please contact Amy Davis at NOAH Extra copies are also available for purchase at £45 via the NOAH website. There are special prices for bulk orders.

NOAH is pleased to donate £1 from each sale to its 2015 charity Therapaws.
