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

  • Important  to  Know

    FYI re: 2023 Renewals
    All on-line CE will be accepted

    The Renewal Window opens on November 1st; at that time you will have access to the Renewal Application once logged into the Licensure Gateway.

    A reminder will be sent via e-mail around the last half of October so be sure you keep your address updated. Consider adding this email address to your CONTACTS (kwest@ncvmb.org) so there's less liklihood of the reminder going into your Junk/Spam folder.
