About this presentation

One of the challenges to the success of veterinary medicines is the limited number of drugs and dosage forms available exclusively to this market, due to the variability of animals.  In this presentation we focus on the development of pharmaceutical forms for the animal population. Finally, challenges and opportunities are presented in the field of pharmaceutical dosage forms for veterinary use in response to the interests of the pharmaceutical industry.
