FDA FARAD Regulated Antibiotics for Bees
Veterinary Feed Directive Requirements for Veterinarians
Brochure version of Veterinary Feed Directive Requirements for Veterinarians
While a feed mill VFD is not required for honey bees, the major requirements and duties of the prescribing veterinarian are the same. Description of the overall scope of treated bees and the maximum length of time of treatment and refills do apply. While the veterinarian can order and dispense the drugs approved for honey bees upon request, typically a prescription would be written to be filled by the vendor who was previously your OTC (over the counter) supplier.
