FDA product tables help prepare for VFD

FDA product tables: Helpful VFD planning tools for poultry vets, feed mills and producers

Not sure which poultry feed medications will require a veterinary feed directive as of January 2017?

FDA has posted a series of tables on its website listing all medicated feed additives currently approved for use in poultry, along with their active ingredients, brand names, label type and indications.[1]

In addition, the FDA product tables show each product’s current marketing status — over-the-counter (OTC) or veterinary feed directive (VFD) — and also indicate which OTC products or combinations are considered medically important and must transition to VFD by the end of 2016.

Furthermore, the tables list current OTC products with performance claims only — e.g., improved feed efficiency, increased rate of weight gain — that will be withdrawn unless they secure therapeutic claims approved by the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine.

The lists for poultry, which are updated periodically, are broken down into specific categories such as broiler chickens, laying chickens, growing turkeys, turkey poults and so on. There are also tables for ducks, pheasants and quail.
