Board of Veterinary Medicine



Objective and Function

The primary objective of the Delaware Board of Veterinary Medicine is to protect the public from unsafe practices and practices which tend to reduce competition or fix prices for services. The Board must also maintain standards of professional competence and service delivery. To meet these objectives, the Board

  • develops standards for professional competency
  • promulgates rules and regulations
  • adjudicates complaints against professionals and, when necessary, imposes disciplinary sanctions.

The Board issues licenses to veterinarians and veterinary technicians, including temporary licenses.

The Board’s statutory authority is in 24 Del. C., Chapter 33.


Meetings

Unless notified otherwise, the Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 1:00 p.m., except July and December. All meetings are open to the general public and are held in the Cannon Building, 861 Silver Lake Boulevard, in Dover. The meeting schedule is available on the State of Delaware public meeting calendar.

The Board may need to review and approve your application for licensure. The Board can only review a complete application. A complete application includes your application and any documentation submitted through DELPROS and/or any documents submitted through the mail or email from third-parties. The Board will review your documentation at its next scheduled meeting.
