Practice Act

The Louisiana Practice Act, Rules and Standards, Complimentary Laws, and Code of Ethics are now available in one document. Last Revised: March 2018.

The Louisiana Veterinary Practice Act, the Board Rules and complementary legal authority are provided as a courtesy to the reader. However, they are continuously under review and potentially subject to adoption, amendment or repeal at any time based on circumstances presented. Accordingly, the law and Rules set forth of the Louisiana Board of Veterinary Medicine’s website may not be completely accurate in content at a given time due to the short delay necessary to update the web page. Therefore, it is advised that the reader verifies with the LBVM office on the validity of legal authority. It would be prudent to follow the appropriate procedure when submitting queries, when applicable, by reviewing Rule 1423 regarding Declaratory Statements.  Or, view the Notice and/or Rule in the Louisiana Register, http://www.doa.la.gov/Pages/osr/reg/register.aspx.

No emergency rule at this time.
