At its October 2015 meeting, the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners adopted a rule that converts renewal dates from the current March 1st expiration date to a birth-month system.  Previously all licenses expired on March 1st each year.  In the new birth-month system, all licenses will expire at the end of the birth-month of the licensee.  Please disregard your 2015 renewal certificate - you are no longer required to post a renewal certificate and one will not be mailed to you in 2016.

Your license no longer expires on March 1st - your license is valid until the last day of your birth-month in 2016.
