Veterinary Board

Sadly, for the pet owners and citizens of Virginia, this Board fails in its primary mandate which is to protect the citizens of VA and their pets from veterinarians who practice below what one would reasonable consider a reasonable standard of care.  Instead, this Board only focuses on little, harmless errors and ommissions that do not impact the quality of care that pets received.  This Board would serve the public better if its focus was on safety and requiring that vets in VA practice a high level of care instead of allowing verts to practice who fail to meet even an minimal standard of care or even common sense.  But for someone who has had experience with this Board, including a certain former Board member whom himself had been cited by the Board twice, this Board is primarly concerned with covering up the poor care that vets give to our pets.  Thank you.
