Animal Health & Safety and the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine is a microcosm of FDA for animals – we regulate drugs, food, and devices for pets, livestock, zoo animals and others. Although COVID-19 is understood to primarily be a human disease, CVM and its stakeholders are experiencing the impact of the outbreak in other ways.

This page compiles information and resources available to industry members and consumers on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and animal health and safety.

For additional information, see FDA's Frequently Asked Questions about Animals, Pets and Animal Drug Products (En Español) or visit FDA's main page Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Note: Contacting FDA about the same issue through multiple communications channels will not lead to a faster reply; in fact, it may delay FDA response by increasing the number of inquiries that need to be processed.
