Selling Veterinary Health Products in Canada

Veterinary Health Products are used to maintain or promote the health and welfare of companion and food-producing animals in Canada. They contain ingredients like minerals, vitamins and traditional medicines. Anyone planning to manufacture, import, sell or distribute a VHP in Canada must adhere to Health Canada Regulations. They require a Notification Number (NN) that allows for the selling of Veterinary Health Products without the need for a Drug Identification Number (DIN). Moreover, manufacturers or distributors need to notify Health Canada about their VIPs:

  • Minimum 30 days prior to selling a VHP in Canada
  • Minimum 30 days prior to making changes to a VHP 
  • Before importing a VHP into Canada

Obtaining Notification Number (NN)

The Veterinary Health Product Notification Program of Health Canada has set a flexible and risk-appropriate regulatory framework for VHPs that have a history of safe use. According to the program, to obtain a Notification Number, 

  • A VHP application needs to be submitted to Health Canada.  
  • All ingredients (active, or inactive) must be present in the Permitted Substances List (PSL).  
  • If some ingredients are not included in the PSL, they must be added to the database prior to VHP application submission.
