The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has reorganized its Veterinary Services (VS) program.  Under the new structure, VS is organized into four strategically focused units.

The new units include:  


  • Surveillance, Preparedness and Response, for animal health needs in the major animal commodity groups
  • National Import Export Services, for import and export initiatives from policy setting to inspection at ports of entry
  • Science, Technology and Analysis, building on scientific, technical, and analytical foundation to support VS in meeting its mission
  • Program Support Services, for providing key support services for VS personnel and stakeholders.
    Additional information describing the APHIS Veterinary Services reorganization is available on the APHIS website.
