Flow Chart & FAQs: Sales and Dispensing Pr DIN drug premixes and Pr medicated feed (ANAC)

May 11, 2018

The Animal Nutrition Association of Canada created a flow chart to illustrate the flow, as per federal and provincial laws and regulations, of prescription DIN drug premixes and prescription medicated feed in Canada.

The number of drugs which will require a prescription is changing. Any medically important antimicrobial (MIA) drug which is currently over-the-counter, will be added to Health Canada’s prescription drug list (PDL), effective December 1, 2018.

The intent of the fact sheet is to clarify the details around selling and dispensing of prescription (Pr) veterinary drugs. Read more.
