FYI: The BVet is now the BLV

Just an FYI:

As of 1 Jan 2014 the federal department responsible for animal health and welfare, the Bundesamt für Veterinärwesen, or BVet, and the department within the Bundesamt für Gesundheit (BAG) responsible for food safety have been merged. The new entity is called the Bundesamt für Lebensmittelsicherheit und Veterinärwesen, the BLV.

The new URL is:
http://www.blv.admin.ch

It looks as if links using the old BVet addresses, (which are liberally sprinkled throughout Pet Corner threads) are still good, however.


One can read about the change here:

Re: FYI: The BVet is now the BLV

There seems to be a lot of changes going on with the federal websites at the moment. I found some of the links I use regularly had disappeared so had to enquire about how to find them. The latest one I lost was my link to the Foreign Nationals Act; luckily I tracked it down again.

Will make a note of the new BLV site for future reference, thanks Meloncollie.

Re: FYI: The BVet is now the BLV

It looks as if several of the old BVet links aren't working after all.

As time allows, I'll try to edit some of my old posts - but should one come across a link that isn't working anymore, please let me know.

I would encourage all pet owners to peruse the new BLV site - remember revisions to the animal welfare laws have come into force on 1 Jan 2014. Another must-read is the BLV's more 'colloquial' site, www.meinheimtier.ch.

For starters, the BLV Tierschutz Q&A page makes for interesting reading, helpful in navigating various applicable laws:

Thanks again Meloncollie, but the BLV faq link isn't working. It comes up with an error message.

Hmmm - I've edited it to the German default.

Seems to be working now - but one will need to switcht to the French/Italian as needed.
