The purpose of the Board of Veterinary Examiners is to administer and enforce the statutory authority and to monitor the needs of the consuming public. The board examines and licenses all eligible candidates for entry into the profession of veterinary medicine. It recommends appropriate changes in the law to assure fairness and equality. The board conducts formal hearings when necessary and prosecutes by due process any violators of KRS 321.
The board is a self-supporting agency and receives no General Fund tax appropriation. It is funded entirely through fees assessed for licensing its professionals.
Effective July 1, 2018 the Kentucky Board of Veterinary Examiners has moved to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. The new location is 107 Corporate Drive, Frankfort, KY 40601. Michelle Shane is the Board Coordinator and can be reached at 502-782-0273.
