The use and distribution of drugs represents a daily process in veterinary practice and is regulated by numerous legal norms. The topic is dealt with by laws, as well as by regulations and decrees, leading to a norm landscape that can be bewildering. The present paper aims to provide an overview of the existing provisions in relation to the use and distribution of drugs in veterinary practice. Also explained are the characteristics of the use of drugs in food-producing animals. In addition, the authors indicate the areas where they feel there is urgent need for regulation.
