The ’23-’24 Renewal Cycle opens on July 1, 2023! All licenses and certificates issued for DVMs, RVTs, CAETs, and REDs expire annually on September 30th. Any license or certificate not properly renewed – with all Continuing Education hours completed and submitted along with all required fees paid in full – before September 30th at 11:59pm (central) will be expired beginning on October 1st. Expired licenses can still be renewed after September 30; however, renewing an expired license will result in late fees being incurred. If you practice veterinary medicine with an expired license, you are in direct violation of the LA Veterinary Practice Act. Practicing veterinary medicine without a license is a serious offense for which the Board can take action. All renewals must be completed through the new LBVM License Portal – Paper renewal forms are no longer mailed to licensees via USPS.
While the renewal cycle does not open until July 1, 2023, licensees can enter their Continuing Education activity now through the LBVM License Portal. Instructions for logging into the License Portal, entering continuing education activity, and completing the renewal process can be found at www.lsbvm.org/renewal.
