TBVME has been made aware of conflicts between the new federal horse racing laws, known as HISSA, and the TBVME Rules of Professional Conduct. In such instances, federal law preempts state law and rules. While TBVME is complaint driven and is statutorily required to investigate all complaints that are received by the agency, TBVME is aware of the conflict and will dispose of complaints where HISSA is involved accordingly. We encourage all licensees to follow the federal laws as they currently stand and the state rules to the best of their ability.

New Licensee Self-Service Portal

The new licensee self-service portal is active and now features the ability to submit New Applications for Licensure. Additional features available include the ability for licensees to create an account, verify information, and view certain licensee documents online. Additional modules will be released soon, which will include the ability to renew a license within the self-service portal and make any required payments to Board. 

You may access the self-service portal at: https://online.txveterinary.org

This soft launch is designed to begin populating account information within the system and evaluating system performance outside of the test environment. If you have feedback on your experience with features included in this initial release, please send provide the feedback to portal@veterinary.texas.gov.
