Tory MEP Philip Bushill-Matthews has welcomed the approval of key amendments to the EU Veterinary Medicines Directive, which he says is good news for UK farmers and pet owners.
The original directive would have ended sales over the counter of basic animal treatments and put up prices of animal drugs.
He said it would have led to a drop in animal welfare standards and the closure of established rural businesses.
