Answer: From the FDA website: “The VFD final rule outlines the process for authorizing use of VFD drugs (animal drugs intended for use in or on animal feed that require the supervision of a licensed veterinarian) and provides veterinarians in all states with a framework for authorizing the use of medically important antimicrobials in feed when needed for specific animal health purposes.”
Kelp has never required the supervision of a veterinarian for feeding, is not a drug and is not be by this rule. It is always a good idea to keep your vet informed of all supplements fed to your animals and care should be taken feeding it to iodine sensitive animals like horses or cats, sticking to recommended doses and making sure the kelp is their only iodine source. Sincerely, Thorvin
I've fed this kelp to all my animals for years. Can't beat the quality and price!
Best price on kelp meal I have found. We are working on a series of amendment test beds right now and one of the ingredients needed was kelp meal. After much searching, I found it here. If the quality can be judged by aroma, this kelp is excellent. Smells richly of the ocean. I tasted it as well and it is very good - tastes like seaweed should. Yes, I know it's not for "human consumption" but I am the official taste-tester for my gardens. They are that important. Kelp meal was well-packaged and arrived in good time. Thank you - will buy again.
