A Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) is required for purchase of Tetra Bee Mix.
A VFD is a written statement issued by a licensed veterinarian. It allows the use of oxytetracycline or other VFD drugs in or on animal feed. Anyone who wants to use oxytetracycline is required to obtain a VFD from his or her veterinarian before purchasing or using any related antibiotics, and may only use the antibiotics for prevention, control or treatment of specific diseases - in this case, American and European foulbrood.Please call Customer Service at 1-800-233-2899 to order.
