DEFEND THE FLOCKS!
🦢🐣🐥🦜🦆🦅🕊🐓🍗🐔🐤🦃
Did you know that our turkeys, chickens, pheasants, ducks are dying across the country due to a disease called Bird Flu!! Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI)

Over 17 millions birds have either died or had to be put down to stop spreading the disease.

The numbers are growing and will impact prices of eggs especially Easter and Passover unfortunately will be impacted.

According to the World Health Organization and the CDC, properly cooked poultry is perfectly safe to eat. Additionally, the CDC said there's no evidence to suggest that the virus can be transmitted to humans from poultry that is cooked properly.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) urging all bird owners to practice good biosecurity, prevent contact between their birds and wild birds, and report sick birds or unusual bird deaths to APHIS toll-free number at 1-866-536-7593.

Producers and backyard poultry owners please consider bringing birds indoors when possible to further prevent exposures because wild birds are spreading this disease

Bicameral Legislation Introduced to Prevent Spread of Foreign Animal Diseases

Our Executive Vice President Dr. Joseph Annelli says, “As a previous Director of Emergency Programs at APHIS Veterinary Services and having to mitigate the effects of screwworm from imported dogs I can attest to the value of this legislation. I am concerned with the additional workload this may create for APHIS-VS unless there is a budget for additional staffing to make this workable.”

NAFV is encouraging all NAFV members to write to your Members of Congress in support of the Healthy Dog Importation Act 0f 2021. You can do that through the AVMA-CAN portal linked in the article below. A friendly reminder to all public employees to ensure to do this outreach in your capacity as a private citizen, using your personal email and personal devices.

Supporting Federal Veterinarians Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic

"One of the essential roles that Federal Veterinarians play revolves around animal disease inspections. This includes food animals, livestock, wildlife, and laboratory animals. Much of this inspection work requires on-site inspection, documentation, and tracking- making it nearly impossible for this work to be conducted remotely. As such, throughout the pandemic, NAFV has worked very hard to ensure that veterinarians serving in those roles feel supported. Often, NAFV’s most important role has been to serve as a conduit between field and regional employees and headquarters here in Washington. Indeed, we take seriously our role as part of the feedback loop, ensuring that our members have an opportunity to provide feedback on how policies and initiatives affect their ability to perform their duties without fear of retribution. "

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for all people in a variety of ways. For employers, one of such challenges included the need to adapt how employees showed up to work. For federal employees, many of whom serve in essential capacities, there were all kinds of adaptations and consid

Imagine for a second that you are about to make a classic American turkey club sandwich. What would be some of the ingredients you would need for such? Fresh bread with a thin layer of mayo, medium-thick slices of turkey topped with some salty bacon, and fresh crisp tomato and lettuce to top it all off. While you may not realize it, you have Federal Veterinarians to thank as they are involved with ensuring that all of the ingredients (except the bread) in that turkey club are abundantly available, safe to eat and at a reasonable price[1]. The National Association of Federal Veterinarians (NAFV) represents those veterinarians and are focused on ensuring that federal veterinarians have the tools and support they need to continue to provide their critical service.

I was wondering if there was any opportunity for mentorship. I was in small animal and shelter practice for seven years before leaving to pursue my MPH full time. I went to vet school in Scotland, so had a lot of agriculture and livestock exposure. I am also category I accredited and am working towards category II. I would like to work for APHIS, but have not been able to land any interviews yet. Would anybody be able to help me review my resume so that I can improve weaknesses to make me a better candidate? Many thanks in advance, Anik Chavez
https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/512159100 This is amazing opportunity and a positive step in the right direction for veterinarians within FSIS. You would also get the opportunity to work with NAFV as well as veterinary colleges and other employers of veterinarians.
