At its meeting on December 8, the board licensed ten veterinarians to practice in North Dakota.  It was a diverse group, including graduates of seven different veterinary schools.  Five of the new licensees are living and practicing in North Dakota.  The other five live in adjoining states and have clients in North Dakota.


The board will have a special meeting in the Peace Garden Room of the State Capitol on February 19, beginning at 10:00 am.


The next regular board meeting is scheduled for June 14, 2016 in the Peace Garden Room at the State Capitol in Bismarck.  Candidates for licensure to practice veterinary medicine in North Dakota will take the state board examination and meet with the board beginning at 9:00 AM.  The board's business meeting will follow that, beginning around 12:30 PM.


Licenses to practice veterinary technology expire annually on December 31.  Renewals were mailed to the licensee's address of record on November 25, 2015.  Renewals received after December 31 are subject to the $7.50 late fee, and late notices were mailed on January 4 to all licensees whose renewals were not renewed by December 31.  See the portal page for more information.
