Dear Veterinarian: The Veterinarian category of membership in the National Animal Supplement Council includes professional health care providers, Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians, who support the objectives of NASC.
If you recommend the use of health supplements for your companion animal and equine patients and believe in your right to have access to these products, we need your help. The availability of health supplements for companion animals- closely resembling human dietary supplements- with ingredients like Glucosamine, MSM, herbs and antioxidants, is at risk. Regulatory uncertainty, including “stop sale” orders from numerous states, may restrict your ability to sell or recommend the use of these products for your patients.
NASC is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing the health of companion animals and horses throughout the United States. We now represent over 90% of the animal health supplement industry with more than 100 US and international members. NASC actively promotes industry support from key stakeholders including regulators, legislators, media, veterinarians, pet professionals and consumers. There is strength in numbers and you will make a difference.NASC delivers the information you need to stay current with the animal health supplement industry. We are currently developing a Veterinarian-only port on this website for the use of veterinary professionals who are registered as NASC members. This site will give you access to the Ingredient Research Database, a reference library on the over 500 ingredients found in animal health supplements sold by NASC Primary Supplier members. Labeling guidelines will explain the differences in labeling feed or nutritional supplements versus dosage form animal products, giving you valuable insight into what you should look for when selecting a product. Current news on regulatory issues and an overview of FDA/CVM and State regulations will be provided. In addition, NASC's Scientific Advisory Committee provides up-to-date information on ingredient risk evaluation and research information. News And Special Communiques, the official NASC newsletter, reports all the latest news and accomplishments of the organization.
We are proud of our accomplishments and would like to do more. (Click here to see the Accomplishments NASC has achieved since the organization was started 6 years ago.) Please become an NASC member.
