Board of Veterinary Medicine

Welcome to the website of the Office of Professional and Occupational Regulation, an agency within the Department of Professional and Financial Regulation. We appreciate your visit to our site, and we look forward to assisting you.


The State Board of Veterinary Medicine was established to protect the public interest through the regulation of the practice of veterinary medicine in order to maintain high professional standards.

The primary responsibilities of the Board are to evaluate applicant qualifications, to administer examinations of applicants, to grant licenses to those who meet board requirements, investigate complaints, and take appropriate disciplinary action.
