Veterinary Substances DataBase (VSDB)

Veterinary pharmaceuticals are biologically active and potentially persistent substances which are recognised as a continuing threat to environmental quality. Whilst the environmental risk of agricultural pesticides has had considerable attention in recent decades, risks assessments for veterinary pharmaceuticals have only relatively recently began to be addressed. Risk assessments and risk modelling tend to be inherently data hungry processes and one of the main obstacles to consistent, accurate and efficient assessments is the need for a reliable, quality and comprehensive data source.

The University of Hertfordshire’s Pesticide Properties Database (PPDB) provides this data source for agricultural pesticides and this has in recent years become a respected and relied on resource. To compliment the PPDB we can now offer the VSDB which is a comprehensive relational database of physicochemical and toxicological data for veterinary substances.
