From January to April, physical imports of veterinary drugs to Russia were around 9.4 million packages, which is 5.9% less than in the same period of 2021.

Analysts note geographical shifts in veterinary drugs supply. “Shipments from Belgium, Austria, France and Germany reduced significantly in April 2022,” RNC Pharma said. At the same time, they observe a rise in supplies from China (14.6 times in packages), Slovenia (4.8 times) and Switzerland (2.6 times).

Among animal health companies, the Spanish Laboratorios MAYMÓ showed the largest growth in terms of value of supply in January-April 2022. The company’s imports grew 22.8 times from the beginning of the year, if counted in rubles, experts said. “The dynamics was achieved mostly through the antimicrobial drugs for farm animals - Doxigran and Enrogran,” RNC Pharma explained.

It is followed by the Spanish Biokorm International. Its imports grew 14.6 times, mostly due to Amoxivet antibiotic drug. The third best is Dayang Biotech Group (China), which increased its imports 7.9 times, mostly due to Enduro antibacterial product.
