  • New Registration for Ambulatory Facility Requirements

    8/15/2017
    Ambulatory facilities, that are not an extension of a WV stationary veterinary facility, will now need to register their facilities and be inspected initially and every 2 years.  Since this is a new requirement, ambulatory facilities need to complete a facility registration application no later than July 1, 2018.  Once the Board receives the ambulatory registration, an inspection will need to be scheduled.  After the initial inspection, your facility will be inspected every 2 years.  Click here to view the Ambulatory Facility Inspection Policy
