The following videotaped presentations support the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine’s (CVM's) mission to protect U.S. human and animal health by assuring the safety, efficacy, and quality of animal drugs, including drugs intended for food-producing animals, and the safety of animal feeds and pet foods. They explain our programs for approving products and for monitoring products after they have been placed on the market. These videos also describe how CVM supports continuing efforts to reduce trade barriers and promote harmonization of international standards and guidelines.
We recommend that you begin viewing the series with the introductory statements by our Center Director, Dr. Bernadette Dunham, who further explains our Mission and Goals. In addition to Dr. Dunham’s overview of CVM, several of our experts offer their welcome to you in their native languages.
