Veterinary pharmacovigilance is the ongoing monitoring and evaluation of adverse events including lack of efficacy after use of veterinary medicines to improve their safety and use.

An electronic survey  was drafted by the FVE and EMA, tested with a pilot audience comprising pharmacovigilance experts and practising veterinarians. The survey was promoted to veterinarians across Europe through the FVE members and the members of the Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use Pharmacovigilance Working Party.
