Disaster Fund Established for Veterinary Community

In just over 48 hours, wildfires and severe storms have devastated many Kansas communities. Those hardest hit areas have displaced animals and livestock fatalities. Veterinarians, as well as the people they serve, have lost home and a considerable amount of livestock resources have been destroyed.

KVMA is establishing a disaster relief fund in response to the recent activities. Cash donations may be made through the KVMA Foundation, the KVMA's charitable organization. Donations will be used to ensure shelter and medical care is available for animals as well as meeting the needs for the veterinary community. KVMA Foundation is a 501 c(3) organization. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.

Members and friends are encouraged to consider a contribution to the fund. You may contribute by credit card by calling 785-234-0461 or click on the link below. By check, please mail to KVMA Foundation, 816 SW Tyler, Topeka, KS 66612.

Veterinary Feed Directive law goes into effect

Whether you're working with production animals, backyard food animals, or even certain pets, you may need a Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) in order to comply with new federal regulations. Legally, any cow, pig, chicken, turkey, duck, pheasant, quail, sheep, or goat, is a food-producing animal (along with lobsters, honeybees, catfish, and salmonids), and must be treated as such when it comes to medications. There are drugs, that cannot, under any circumstances, be administered to them, and the extra-label drug use rules and Minor Use/Minor Species (MUMS) Act DO NOT apply to the VFD.
