Overview:

 

In December 2013, FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) released Guidance #213, requiring all medically important antibiotics for food animals change from being over-the-counter products to prescription or veterinary feed directive (VFD)  products; this change was to be completed by December 2016.  Beginning  January 1, 2017, any user of these antibiotics requires an order from a veterinarian. 

 

As FDA considers honey bees as food animals, veterinarians in the United States will need to know more about basic honey bee biology, husbandry, and diseases. This will assist them as they provide prescription and veterinary feed directive orders.

During the call, clinicians will learn about honey bees, including prescribing antibiotics for honey bees, some basic honey bee biology, and the common diseases that affect them.

 

Objectives:

  • Describe why beekeepers are now calling veterinarians.  
  • Explain the veterinary client patient relationship as it applies to veterinarians, beekeepers, and honey bees.
  • Describe common bacterial infections of honey bees and use of antibiotics in honey   bees.
  •   List some of the opportunities for veterinarians in honey bee veterinary medicine.
