Attention new Applicants and Renewing Licensees
Avoid Unnecessary Delays in Your License Issuance or Renewal
The Veterinary Medical Board is scheduled to transition to the new BreEZe online licensing and enforcement system in January 2016. The transition to the new system will require a temporary shutdown of all licensing processes for several business days, and could result in delays in processing initial license applications, license reneals, and changes such as name changes or changes of address.
License Renewals: Individuals holding a license from the Veterinary Medical Board with December 2015 or January 2016 expiration dates who wish to renew their licenses are strongly encouraged to renew as early as possible, preferably before the end of November.
New Licenses: Individuals seeking a new license from the Veterinary Medical Board are strongly encouraged to apply before November 23, 2015 or after January 2016 to help avoid delays in license issuance.
The new BreEZe system will, among other things, allow online applications or renewals, allow payment online with a credit card in a secure enviroment, and allow individuals to track their applications.
More information will be posted on the Department
of Consumer Affairs' BreEZe information page
the Morris Animal Foundation's
at York County Community College in Wells Maine.
I am looking for feedback from RVT's on their educational experience.
