The FDA granted approval for Orion’s Clevor, an eye drop indicated for the induction of vomiting in dogs, in June 2020. Under the terms of the related agreement, Vetoquinol will have the right to sell and market Clevor (ropinirole) in the USA.
On Aug. 1, 2020, Vetoquinol acquired the rights for the Drontal and Profender products in the EU and the UK.
