Summary

The number of treatments allowed with chemically synthetised veterinary medicines varies from one species to another. For example poultry may have none, while ewes can have two. The number of treatments for parasites is limited, depending on the species.

Difference

The French regulations give a maximum number of chemically synthetised allopathic treatments, including parasite-treatments, for each species. EU Regulation 2092/91 limits chemically synthetised allopathic treatments to 3 a year (or 1 if the animal lives less than a year) for every species and puts no limit on the number of chemically synthetised allopathic treatments for parasites.

Justification

Chemically synthetised allopathic treatment should be restricted if possible. Treatments for parasites should not be systematically applied, because systematic allopathic treatments are not consistent with organic farming principles.
