The Board has legal authority and can take disciplinary actions against veterinarians and veterinary technicians for violations of state laws and regulations.
Its primary purpose is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public by ensuring that licensed veterinarians and veterinary establishments in Florida adhere to established laws and regulations governing the practice of veterinary medicine.
