ND Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners: News

Home » News »



The board met on June 14, 2016 at the State Capitol.  Twenty-four veterinarians were licensed, representing graduates of 13 different veterinary colleges.  Thirteen of the new licensees have jobs in North Dakota; the others are working in other states.


The board presented testimony to the Administrative Rules Committee on June 14 concerning a rule change approved by the board last year that will require veterinarians to provide a written prescription to clients who request one.


Licenses to practice veterinary medicine expire annually on June 30.  Renewals were mailed to the licensee's address of record on May 27.  See the portal page for more information.


The practice act specifies that it is each licensee's responsibility to notify the board office of changes in the licensee's address or contact information within 60 days of a change (NDCC 43-29-07).


The board reports annually to the North Dakota Veterinary Medical Association (NDVMA).  A copy of the 2016 report is available here.
