What qualifications do vets need to practice medicine in Oklahoma?
It’s natural to be nervous about selecting a new veterinarian in Oklahoma for your pet.
There are so many factors to consider when choosing a new vet in (OK).
- Will you like the individual?
- Is the hospital stay duration suitable for your schedule?
- Do they accept your pet insurance policy?
But, there are more than just day-to-day practicalities to consider when picking a veterinarian in Oklahoma and probably the most important thing you’ll want to know is if your local veterinarian practice and it’s staff have the appropriate qualifications.
Mandatory US veterinary qualifications
When seeking a veterinarian, make sure the one you’re considering is licensed in the United States and the state of Oklahoma.
You might also want to inquire about whether any other individuals working in the hospital are licensed, such as registered veterinary technicians, the easiest way to do this is by vesting the veterinary practice and having a look around. If you can’t find certificates hanging in the reception area, ask the receptionist if it is possible to see copies.
You can also contact your state board of veterinary medicine, in this case Alabama for further information if you don’t see the certifications displayed.
The two qualifications you are looking for are;
DVM (VMD) – Doctor of Veterinary Medicine – All veterinarians in the United States must have a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree. A DVM degree indicates that the individual you’re considering is a properly trained veterinarian with all necessary qualifications to practice effectively.
State Veterinary Licensing – In order to practice veterinary medicine, many states demand that veterinarians pass a state-specific licensing exam. These tests typically check the veterinarian’s understanding of the state’s rules and regulations governing veterinary practice.
These are the basic minimum requirements that any vet in Oklahoma should have.
If your pet has more specific medical needs you may also want to consider a practice in Oklahoma where the staff have additional qualifications, such as;
Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (DABVP) which allows the vet to practice more advance procedures.
Or if you have a particularly anxious pet you may want to consider a practice that holds a Fear Free Certification which indicates that staff have been trained to deal with anxious pets.
