Due to COVID-19 Pandemic - Please use email for all of your questions and communications, bovminfo@agri.idaho.gov
(We will not have anyone in the office to answer phones.)   

Our mail service has been cut to two (2) days per week, so there will likely be some delay in receiving and processing applications. 

Please check our website for updates at:  www.bovm.idaho.gov/


Regarding Continuing Education, (CE), for the upcoming renewal season: 
The Board made a temporary rule change to the CE credit requirements.  For the renewal season of 2020, we are cutting the number of credits required
IN HALF, and ALL of them can be taken online.
(
The specific language for the Temporary Rule Change to be posted soon.)

This means that to renew in May and June of 2020:
Veterinarians will only need 10 credits.
CVT’s will only need 7 credits. 
All credits can be done online.

We thank you again for your continued patience as we all work through this together.
