NOAH used the London Vet Show to announce the launch of an app for both Apple and Android devices.

NOAH app.
NOAH says complete datasheets can be viewed on the app.

The app – which will get frequent updates – gives users the ability to find information on more than 1,000 animal medicine listings included on the compendium website, with complete data sheets available for viewing.

Exciting feature

Another feature is the ability to scan data matrix barcodes on veterinary medicinal product packaging that links straight to important product information. It is also searchable by medication, manufacturer or GTIN.

NOAH’s chief executive Dawn Howard said: “The NOAH Compendium is the recognised industry reference, and it is essential we fully use the information offered with modern technology, while protecting the integrity and respect it holds.

Relaunch success

“The website, which we relaunched earlier this year, has had more than 8.5 million views to date – we feel this app serves as a great addition to this modern method of accessing data, meaning users are no longer reliant on internet access to obtain the information they need.

She continued: “As an organisation, we will continue to embrace new technologies to ensure animal medicine is used correctly and responsibly in the UK. The launch of this app goes towards ensuring all those who prescribe or use animal medicines have access to the latest technical information available for companion and farm animals when they need it.”
