A VFD is a written statement issued by a licensed veterinarian that allows the use of Oxytetracycline in or on animal feed.

Only veterinarians with a veterinary-client-patient relationship may issue a VFD form. The forms may not be issued over the phone, however electronic forms sent via email or fax will be accepted. Copies of the VFD form must be kept by all parties including the veterinarians, customer, and distrubutor for a minimum of two years; and the expirations date on the form is not exceed six months. VFD forms will include detailed information specifying the farm, animals being treated, antibiotic(s) used, feeding rates, and the exact duration of the treatment.
