Welcome to the Honey Bee Veterinary Consortium
We are having a conference September 29-30, 2018 in Raleigh, NC! Come hear world class speakers including Nicolas Vidal-Naquet, David Tarpy and Randy Oliver discuss veterinary medicine for honey bees!
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.
