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 Legislature. Our mission is to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of the people and animals of North Carolina.

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

Renewal is Open!

On your first visit to the NEW Licensure Gateway, disregard the 'User Name' & 'Password' fields. Click on the 'REGISTER NOW!' button.

Our NEW SOFTWARE will require you to register via the new ‘Licensure Gateway’ before you can renew.

NOTE: Please be aware your current 'User Name' and 'Password' will no longer be effective; you will be prompted to create new ones.

If you are a veterinarian, who owns a facility and/or a corporation, you will only be required to register one time as all entities will be linked.
