Disciplinary Actions

The State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners is responsible fo​r investigating complaints against its licensees and, when necessary, ordering disciplinary actions against them. In the interest of transparency, the Board will post all disciplinary actions taken against Maryland veterinarians.

The database currently lists all actions taken since 2010 and has links to the final orders for those actions handed down during FY 2017, which began July 1, 2016. More information will be added as more files become available electronically. Residents are always welcome to contact us for more information at: 410-841-5862 or email mda.veterinaryboard@maryland.gov
