Kentucky Board of Veterinary Examiners

Board of Veterinary Examiners

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. 

 

The Office of Occupations and Professions anticipates online renewals will not be available after 4:00 PM on April 21, 2016, until further notice.  As we transition to a new platform, users may download forms from the “Resources” tab then “Applications and Forms”.   

 
Please avoid phone calls to Occupations and Professions staff during this period to allow processing of paper applications. Priorities will be given to occupations and professions without grace periods or to those with billing issues related to end of month licensure.
 
It is our hope this will be a brief interruption in our online abilities and the licensing system will be a substantial improvement in user access and expectations.

                                                 
The Office of Occupations and Professions suggests completing your renewal at least two weeks prior to your expiration date.
