Reporting Suspected Adverse Events Related to Veterinary Biologics

The Health of Animals Regulations require all holders of product licences and import permits to report all "serious expected" or "serious unexpected" SAE, including lack of efficacy, to CCVB within 15 days of receiving notice of the event from a veterinarian or animal owner. This includes complaints regarding all veterinary biologics (including autogenous vaccines) manufactured or imported for commercial, research or emergency use in Canada or those manufactured for export only.

Veterinarians and animal owners should notify CCVB of SAE related to veterinary biologics that occur in animals, including both vaccinated and in-contact animals. This can be done by notifying CCVB directly or through the licensed vaccine manufacturer or importer.
