Veterinary Health Products in Canada

VHPs are low-risk health products in the dosage form. They are used to maintain and promote the health and wellness of certain animals. However, these products are not recommended for treating, preventing, or curing disease. VHPs contain ingredients, including minerals, vitamins, and traditional medicines. 

The Veterinary Services industry in Canada has performed strongly over the last few years. Market is projected to grow due to animal diseases, people’s love for animal adoption, and their awareness about companion animals and livestock. More than 40% of houses in Canada have at least one dog and 38% have at least one cat, according to the Canadian Animal Health Institute (CAHI)’s 2018 report.

Why Need for VHP Regulatory Compliance Solutions

There are certain rules set by Health Canada to sell VHPs in the Canadian market. Anyone planning to manufacture, distribute, import, or sell VHPs in Canada must abide by the labeling rules of Food and Drug Regulations. They must notify Health Canada at least 30 days before selling or importing VHPs in the country, or making any changes to their products. It is recommended that VHP application should be submitted 3 to 6 months prior to sale. When a VHP is registered, a Notification Number (NN) is issued. Health Canada can stop the sale of a VHP if it (product) is found to be unsafe or misleading.

Any company that manufactures, packages, imports, distributes, or stores VHPs must follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) in NHP Regulations.

Serious Drug Reactions

Companies must report serious drug reactions to Health Canada as well as submit extensive evidence to support the safety of any new ingredient in animals.
