Office of the State Veterinarian

What do we do?

The Office of the State Veterinarian protects the livestock, poultry, and aquaculture industries directly, and the public indirectly, through the prevention, early detection, containment, and eradication of economically important livestock, poultry, and fish diseases that, in many cases, are transmissible to people. In addition, welfare of farm animals is ensured by assisting the Livestock Inspection Program in the investigation and prosecution of cases of cruelty to animals. This Office watches over four areas: Regulation of the importation of animals, control and eradication of livestock diseases, regulation of fish farming, transportation and processing and emergency response.
