The Board of Veterinary Examiners is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing. The Board consists of four veterinarians and one public member. Board members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature.
The Board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing veterinary practice in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. The Board meets three times a year and offers a public comment period at each meeting. Meeting agendas and minutes are available from the licensing
examiner and will be posted to this website once prepared.

Following SB74, businesses engaged in the practice of telemedicine are required to register for placement on the Telemedicine Business Registry (TBR) through the Professional Licensing Section. Please click HERE to access the application and additional information regarding the registry. Please note that the application is for businesses rather than individual licensees to register; if you have any questions regarding scope of practice requirements or limitations regarding telemedicine, please contact the Board or program’s Occupational Licensing Examiner.
Alaska Statutes are passed by the legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the board to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.
AS 08.98 and regulations 12 AAC 68 specifically govern veterinary practice. AS 08.01 - 08.03 and regulations 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.
Proposed regulations are advertised in Alaska newspapers and we invite public comment on them. If you would like to receive notice of proposed regulations, please write to the regulations specialist and request that your name be added to the Veterinary interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish your name removed from the mailing list.
National organizations may provide information on the regulation of veterinary practice in other states.
