Task force drafts legislation to regulate breeders

Article

Oklahoma City - An Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) task force is looking into proposing legislation that would provide state regulation for pet-production facilities.

OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) task force is looking into proposing legislation that would provide state regulation for pet-production facilities.

The issue is being addressed because Oklahoma veterinarians are included in complaints against kennels and catteries. No state regulatory agency oversees pet-production facilities, so owners are filing complaints against veterinarians listed on their animals' health certificates, officials say.

To view a draft of the OVMA's proposed document, visit www.okvma.org. Contact OVMA Executive Director Dr. Charles Helwig at chelwig@okvma.org for more information.
