The CgFARAD is a national food safety database that provides expert-mediated advice to veterinarians on the disposition of drugs and chemicals in food producing animals. If approved veterinary drugs have been or are going to be used in specific animals in an extralabel manner or if there is accidental exposure to drugs, Canadian veterinarians can use this online request service to receive withdrawal information for food animal products such as meat, milk and eggs.

If the request involves non-veterinary approved drugs or chemicals, or involves general information on drug residues, or if you are not a Canadian licensed veterinarian, please contact us by email or phone for further information.
