This page contains up-to-date information on current shortages of medically necessary veterinary products.
When drug shortages involve medically necessary veterinary products, it is FDA’s policy to help prevent or alleviate them. FDA works with drug manufacturers in the U.S. and, when necessary, other countries, to find ways to resolve these shortages. FDA does not have the authority to require a company to make any product, even if it is medically necessary.
