What is a VFD?
Veterinary Feed Directive went into effect January 1st, 2017. A VFD is a written statement issued by a licensed veterinarian that authorizes the use of a VFD drug in or on an animal feed. This written statement authorizes the client (the owner of the animal or animals or other caretaker) to obtain and use animal feed containing a VFD drug or combination VFD drug to treat the client’s animals only in accordance with the conditions for use approved, conditionally approved, or indexed by the FDA. A VFD is also referred to as a VFD order.
This information is required on a lawful VFD:
