Renew Credential

Active Wisconsin veterinary credential holders must re-apply to renew their credential before December 31 of every odd numbered year to keep it current.

If you are currently practicing veterinary medicine in the State of Wisconsin with an expired credential, you must renew your credentials as soon as possible. The cost to renew your credential is $185. That cost includes a $25 late renewal fee.

Failure to renew your credential by March 1 may result in Board action taken against you for unlicensed practice pursuant to Wis. Admin. Code (7.06(20); 9.05(11)].
