REQUEST: Name Change
Fee: No Charge
In order for the Board to change your name in our system, you will be required to supply a copy of a legal document (e.g. marriage certificate, divorce paper) and a copy of your Social Security card reflecting your new name. In addition, be sure to notify us of any address change.
Should you chose, this request may be faxed to (919) 854-5606.
REQUEST: Disciplinary Action Information
Fee: No Charge
Some state agency web sites provide a listing of licensees or registrants who have disciplinary actions. The North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board realizes that listings of this nature do not give a full understanding of the situation that caused the disciplinary action. Therefore, the NC Board chooses not to provide such information on this web site.
The Board will provide disciplinary information on any licensee or registrant upon written request. The request must be made in writing and mailed, faxed or e-mailed to the Board office. The Board's response will most likely be by return mail and contain the letter of dismissal or final disciplinary action. This is provided so that the consumer can make an informed decision regarding their choice of veterinary care. Please provide your name, mailing address, telephone number and whom you are requesting information on.
When requesting disciplinary information, the request must pertain to an individual and not a veterinary practice facility. The Board does not take complaints against veterinary practice facilities, complaints are against individuals. This assures that an individual cannot clear their record by moving to another veterinary practice.
REQUEST: Practice Facility Inspection Information
Fee: No Charge
The Board will provide inspection information on any facility upon written request. The request must be made in writing and mailed, faxed or e-mailed to the Board office. The Board's response will most likely be by return mail and contain information on the most current inspection. This is provided so that the consumer can make an informed decision regarding their choice of a veterinary professional.
Inspections occur every two (2) years. A new practice is inspected prior to opening and again the following year, then every two (2) years thereafter.
Please provide your name, mailing address, telephone number and the facility you are requesting information on.
