Oregon law requires any animal remedy, veterinary biologic,
or pharmaceutical to be registered with the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ORS 596.095):
- Animal remedy means any product used to prevent, inhibit, or
cure illness or enhance or protect the health or well-being of animals.
- An animal remedy does not include food. However, some feeds
making health claims (e.g. joint mobility) may need to register with the
Veterinary Products Program.
- The current registration fee is $100.00 per product, per
Oregon administrative rules provide an exemption for
products that are compounded by Oregon licensed veterinarians for use in their
practice (OAR 603-012, sections 210-240).
