December 2018: Health Canada Changes Affecting Livestock Antibiotics

Starting Dec. 1, 2018, all livestock producers will need a prescription from a licensed veterinarian, before they can
buy a medically important antibiotic (MIA) for therapeutic use in livestock production. This applies to all beef
cattle sectors using antibiotics — cow-calf operators, feedlots and feedmills (and really all sectors of animal
agriculture including beef, dairy, hogs, sheep, horses, fish and even bees).

This December, you’ll need a prescription to buy virtually any livestock antibiotic
