As COVID-19 continues to impact the United States and other countries across the globe, the AVMA is committed to keeping the veterinary community updated with factual, reliable, and veterinary-focused information and resources. We’ve added two new resources to our COVID-19 webpage: FAQs for veterinarians and veterinary clinics, and for pet owners.
Factual information for the veterinary community
Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, the AVMA has worked diligently with national and international organizations and infectious disease experts to provide the most up-to-date information to AVMA members and other U.S. veterinary professionals.
Our dedicated COVID-19 webpage, at avma.org/Coronavirus, includes information about how the virus is transmitted, tips for preventing its spread, and answers to questions about how the virus affects pets. The FAQ documents are two additional tools to help veterinary professionals stay informed and support clients with reliable, up-to-date information.
AVMA also is working with the FDA to gather information about shortages of drugs (including both animal and human drugs used in veterinary medicine), food/feed additives, and other products needed by veterinary teams and distributors. Veterinarians, practices, practice groups, and distributors should email the AVMA at coronavirusavma [dot] org (coronavirus[at]avma[dot]org) to report any supply chain shortages. Include as much information as possible about the product and its manufacturer/distributor.
