AVMA lauds FDA for new regulation of antibiotics in livestock feed
Date:12/11/2013

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) applauds the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) changes to veterinary feed directive (VFD) regulations that will require veterinary oversight of antimicrobial use in livestock. The FDA's Final Guidance 213 establishes a three-year timeframe for phasing out growth-promotion uses of antibiotics important in human medicine and the phasing in of veterinary oversight. The changes were announced today in Washington D.C.

"The AVMA has long advocated that greater veterinary oversight of the use of antimicrobials on the farm is a benefit to human and animal health," said AVMA President Dr. Clark Fobian.

The new rules require that medically important antibiotics currently sold over the counter will now require a VFD, the veterinary equivalent of a prescription, from a veterinarian.  Even with the VFD, any deviation in use from what is stated on the product label is illegal.

The AVMA Steering Committee for FDA Policy on Veterinary Oversight of Antimicrobials has been engaged in discussions with the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine related to veterinary oversight of antimicrobials in feed.

The AVMA is pleased that its recommendations were thoughtfully considered and that many of them are reflected in the final guidance.

Fobian said the FDA demonstrated insight and due diligence by ensuring the VFD orders:

  • Are limited to use under the professional supervision of a licensed veterinarian in the course of the veterinarian's professional practice, and in compliance with veterinary licensing and practice requirements
  • Allow for greater flexibility by deferring to the profession and individual states for specific criteria on professional conduct related to veterinary supervisi
