FDA Withdraws Enforcement Policy that Governed Veterinary Telemedicine During the Covid-19 Pandemic

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the withdrawal of a guidance document entitled “Enforcement Policy Regarding Federal VCPR Requirements to Facilitate Veterinary Telemedicine During the COVID-19 Outbreak,” which was issued in March 2020. FDA is withdrawing the guidance document because the conditions that created the need for the enforcement policy have evolved such that the policy is no longer necessary. The withdrawal is effective February 21, 2023.
