With its mandate to protect and preserve America’s agricultural resources, the work of the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) overlaps with AHI’s mission in meaningful ways. Healthy and profitable agriculture is critical for our food supply and economy, and we share a dedication to keeping animals healthy.
If you have a pet you have likely used a product approved by APHIS. The Center for Veterinary Biologics is a part of APHIS and is the government agency that reviews and approves vaccines used in animals.
From protecting pets during Hurricane Sandy to implementing biosecurity measures to defend piglets from deadly viruses, APHIS has been on the frontlines of protecting animal health for 50 years. Join us in celebrating APHIS’s rich history.
