New animal antibiotic access guidelines go into effect June 11, 2023, and will require a veterinarian prescription for purchase.

That means several antibiotics currently commonplace among farmers and ranchers—especially for cattle producers—will no longer be available for over-the-counter sales. Some of the affected antibiotics include penicillin, tetracycline, sulfadimethoxine and sulfamethazine, cephapirin and more.

According to a University of Wisconsin-Madison online articlethe following will not require veterinary prescription:

  • Dewormers
  • Vaccines
  • Injectable and oral nutritional supplements
  • Pro/prebiotics
  • Topical non-antibiotic treatments

How Do I Get Necessary Animal Antibiotics?

veterinarian-client-patient relationship and prescription written by the veterinarian will ensure you can purchase necessary animal antibiotics. The Food & Drug Administration says the new regulations “limit or reverse resistance arising from the use of antibiotics in animals, while continuing to ensure the availability of safe and effective antibiotics for use in animals and humans.”
