Why Choose Our Auction Facility?

  New Veterinarian Drug Regulations June 2023

Bill GFI #263
While some healthcare tasks can be performed by producers, a veterinarian is an invaluable partner in treating illness and infection, and in many cases necessary to get proper treatment.  Under the FDA's Guidance for Industry (CFI) #263, in June 2023 all medically important antibiotics that were previously available over the counter will require a prescription from a veterinarian for legal use in animals. 

There must a valid veterinarian-client-patient relationship (VCPR) for antibiotics to be prescribed by a veterinarian.  Working with a veterinarian to make a plan will allow them to determine when antibiotics can reduce the need for extra vet visits and help expedite treatments for your livestock. 

Schedule Routine Farm Visits - Any veterinarian must make a routine farm visit at least annually to help establish the VCPR so they can help you when that cow /goat gets sick, and they get the call. 

Please don't ask our veterinarian or vet techs to risk their drug license.  Schedule your farm visit by calling or texting Vale Vet at 704/462-2901.  Someone in the sale barn office may also be able to help you with an appointment. 

This regulation is to help make sure that animals like humans are not given antibiotics when not necessary and to help prevent antibiotics being in the animal's system when sold and possibly consumed by human for food.
