Veterinary Health Product Licensing

VHPs are low risk drugs for pet animals in certain dosage forms. They are used to maintain or promote the health and welfare of companion and food-producing animals. They are not for use to treat, prevent or cure disease.

VHPs contain ingredients such as: vitamins, minerals and traditional medicines.

Companies are to notify Health Canada about their VHPs:

  • at least 30 days before selling a VHP in Canada
  • at least 30 days before making a change to a VHP we have already been notified about in Canada
  • before importing a VHP into Canada

We will facilitate the product licensing and (if necessary) ingredient approvals to get your per-friendly products to market!
