Current Board and Staff

The Louisiana Board of Veterinary Medicine (being a state regulatory agency within the LA Department of Agriculture and Forestry) is a governmental entity whose mandate is to protect the public/animals by enforcing its jurisdiction of interpreting and implementing applicable laws, and the rules it promulgates, regarding the acceptable standard of veterinary care in LA. The Board has sole and sovereign authority in Louisiana over the practice of veterinary medicine as granted to it by the Legislature. The Board members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate and take an Oath of Office. The Board members in discharge of their duties are also held to the ethical standards of state government officials.

By statute, candidates for the Governor’s consideration for appointment to the Board are made by the state professional association, the Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association (LVMA). While Board members may hold general membership in a professional association, they are legally and ethically bound to their Oath of Office and will discharge their duties without any considerations or goals beyond their lawful obligations on the Board. Board members do not represent the interests of the practitioners of veterinary medicine or a professional association while they serves on the Board, nor will they use their office to engage in any conduct which may constitute restraint of lawful trade.

Board members should NOT be contacted directly, especially with respect to possible submission of complaints. Complaints must be filed through the Board office by following the instructions found at
