Check out this video for an overview of creating a VFD in the GVL platform.

You are the veterinarian for Eastern Show Goats. Their animal caretaker Nikki requested you come out to their farm in Fairfield, PA for you to examine their breeding goats. After conducting your exam, you’ve told Nikki she will need to feed the goats chlortetracycline for 21 days. You’ve calculated they will need to be fed chlortetracycline at the concentration of 160 g/ton in order to provide 80.0 mg/head/day. The chlortetracycline drug you wish to feed is only approved for sheep. You’ve determined all Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) regulations have been met in order to authorize the extralabel use of a VFD medicated feed for a minor species. Write a VFD using the following information. You can create your own addresses for the owner and animal locations.
