Welcome to the Honey Bee Veterinary Consortium

The HBVC is made up of students and professionals from all segments of veterinary medicine and animal science who care about bees and beekeeping.

As of January 2017, if a beekeeper needs to administer antibiotics to their honey bees, they are required to have a prescription or feed directive from a licensed veterinarian.

Part of our mission at HBVC is to provide an avenue for beekeepers to locate a veterinarian

that is willing to work with bees. 

Veterinarians, meet beekeepers; Beekeepers, meet veterinarians!

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

If you are a veterinarian interested in working with beekeepers, there is a "Join HBVC" 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.
