New York veterinary professionals (veterinarians and licensed veterinary technicians) must display a current New York registration certificate at each location where they practice; this certificate lists the professional’s name, address and dates of the registration period.  Veterinary professionals must re-register every three years to practice in New York.  Some professionals also display their original New York license, diploma, licenses from other states and membership certificates. You may also verify licensure on the NYS Education Department website at
