CVMA Policy on Urban Livestock and Poultry

The CVMA recognizes that raising urban livestock and poultry is an increasingly prevalent practice.  To ensure the welfare of these animals, owners must be aware of the importance of behavioral needs, proper veterinary care, husbandry (including housing, nutrition, predator control, sanitation) and zoonotic and non-zoonotic disease.  The CVMA encourages owners to consult their state laws and local ordinances prior to ownership.
