Honey Bee Veterinary Consortium

Welcome to the Honey Bee Veterinary Consortium

 

Since when did a beekeeper need to find a veterinarian?  Are bees even animals? 

The US FDA considers honey bees a food producing animal.  Honey is food afterall.

Starting in January 2017, if a beekeeper needs to give their honey bees antibiotics then they will need to have a prescription or feed directive from a veterinarian.

 

How does a beekeeper find a veterinarian that will work with bees? You are in the right spot!
Veterinarians, meet beekeepers, and Beekeepers, meet veterinarians.

 

If you are a beekeeper looking for a veterinarian, there is a "Find a Vet"  menu button above to take you to a searchable listing of veterinarians that have said they are interested in working with beekeepers.  

If you are a veterinarian interested in working with beekeepers, there is a "Join" menu button to take you to where you can sign up to be on the list as a veterinarian interested in bees.  You will also receive a newsletter and have access to specialized content.
