Animal Health Distributors Association
AHDA members employ specially trained and qualified staff (SQPs) known as Registered Animal Medicines Advisors (RAMAs) to prescribe animal medicines classified as available without a diagnosis requirement for large farm animals, companion animals and horses. As such we offer unrivalled availability, access and free advice of an essential range of licensed animal medicines essential for the everyday health and welfare of animals. AHDA actively supports the UK multi channel distribution system to prescribe and sell licensed animal medicines via our members. The current focus of AHDA is to support AHDA RAMAs, help to promote responsible use, raise the profile of AHDA RAMAs and support professional prescribing. AHDA is the voice of Animal Health Distributors throughout the UK with governmental, regulatory and public bodies.
