Veterinary Feed Directives. Valuable services veterinarians can provide to beekeepers, such as 
assisting hobbyist beekeepers with plans for parasite management or assisting commercial
beekeepers with the development of protocols to be followed by beekeeping staff for disease 
detection and control are reviewed.
