Veterinary Examining Board

About Us

The Veterinary Examining Board (VEB) defines professional standards and regulatory policies for veterinarians and veterinary technicians. The board determines the education and experience required for obtaining a credential, develops and evaluates​​ credentialing examinations, and establishes and enforces standards of professional conduct.

Members of the VEB are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Legislature to serve four-year terms. The board consists of five licensed veterinarians, one veterinarian technician, and two public members.

2015 Wisconsin Act 55 transferred the administration of the​ VEB to DATCP.​
