About  Us

The North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board (NCVMB), a state regulatory and consumer protection agency, was created in 1903 by an act of the State

The NCVMB does this by:
  • Setting standards for the profession through statutes and administrative rules
  • Investigating complaints
  • Ensuring that applicants are qualified for licensure
  • Inspecting veterinary facilities
  • Taking disciplinary action against licensees and registrants when necessary to protect the public
