Simply said, farm animal drugs are a key factor supporting the growth of livestock industry all over the globe.

Farm drugs include a wide variety of medical substances such as anti-infective drugs, hormones, analgesics, parasiticide anti-inflammatory medicines, anesthetics, and antibiotics. The manufacturing, distribution, use, and safety of these drugs is controlled by specific administrations in most regions. Before a drug is rolled out for commercial use, it needs to be approved by these administrations. The sponsor or manufacturer of the drug must document scientific testing of the substance, and get it labelled safe and effective. The testing data should also show that a methodology is available to detect and measure any residue left in edible animal products. This needs to be done to analyze how much of the drug remains in the animal’s body, and its consequences.

Apart from this, farmer and veterinary doctors need to strictly adhere to guidelines about how much time must elapse before a treated animal can be slaughtered. The drugs sold also should carry all relevant warnings, constraints, and other important information on their label. Of all drugs under the farm animal drug category, vaccinations are the most commonly used medical substances. Since several decades, an extensive use of vaccines has now been able to eradicate several diseases affecting farm animals. The vaccines need to be kept in chilled or frozen containers, and they might deteriorate rapidly after exposed to warm conditions. Farmers and others involved in animal husbandry practices need to gain thorough knowledge about veterinary practices regarding treatment of farm animals. In this way, they can become aware of all associated aspects in context of animal drugs.
