The board said only graduates from training institutions, which are accredited to offer training in animal health, would be registered and allowed to engage in veterinary practice. Practitioners would also be required to undergo internship.

The board’s mandate is to regulate veterinary training, business, practice and animal welfare services.

It further cautioned all unregistered animal health professionals, irrespective of the year of their graduation, to take note that those who have not been registered and their status updated with the board as at December 31, 2014, would be compelled to undergo internship.
