VMPs are fed to livestock as a source of viable cells whose main purpose in the diet is to have beneficial effects in target livestock species.

This consultation seeks feedback on Appendix E-2: Viable microbial products (VMPs), a proposed addition to Health Canada’s Guidance Document on Classification of Veterinary Drugs and Livestock Feeds.
