In 2011, nine active pharmaceutical ingredients were released on the German market for small animals. Those are the cyclooxygenase-2-inhibitor Cimicoxib (Cimalgex®), the opium-derived analgesic Methadone (Comfortan®), the antiemetic Metoclopramide (Emeprid®), the corticosteroid Mometasone furoate in combination with the antifungal agent Posaconazole (Posatex®), the fluorchinolone-antibiotic Pradofloxacin (Veraflox®), the insecticide Spinosad (Comfortis®), the cytostatic Toceranib (Palladia®) and the vitamin Phytomenadione (Vitamin K1 Laboratoire TVM). Two additional substances were authorized for additional species. The tetracycline-antibiotic Doxycycline is now available for carrier pigeons and the anticoccidial Toltrazuril in combination with Emodepside is likewise authorized for dogs. Furthermore, one new preparation with an interesting new pharmaceutical form and two products with a new strength were added to the market for small animals. In addition, four active pharmaceutical ingredients with approval for use in human medicine, which are of potential interest to veterinary medicine, entered the market in 2011. Those are the antiepileptic Retigabine, the ophthalmic Bromfenac, the psychotropic drug Dexamfetamine and the cytostatic Eribulin.
