Important to know

Requirements to the legal entity:

  • to have at least one employee-veterinary practice professional with a state-recognized diploma as a member of staff;
  • to have job descriptions for individuals who will be directly involved in veterinary practice;
  • to ensure compliance with the requirements of the law in respect of material and technical base.

Requirements to IE:

  • to hold a diploma of educational and qualification degree of training of junior specialist, bachelor or master in specialty “Veterinary Medicine”, as well as a certificate of professional development (to be obtained every five years);
  • to ensure compliance with the requirements of the law in respect of material and technical base.

Requirements depending on the material and technical base:

The license applicant must have the right to use the premises where the veterinary practice will be carried out. The premises can be rented or owned on the basis of the right of ownership.

According to the condition of the material and technical base the premises that are intended for veterinary activities are divided into:

  • clinics;
  • ambulatories;
  • stations.

The clinic of veterinary medicine makes it possible to provide treatment-and-prophylactic services, as well as to conduct clinical trials in a variety of ways: on outpatient basis, on inpatient basis or on house-call basis.

Ambulatories of veterinary medicine make it possible to provide services of prophylactic and treatment of animal diseases, which are provided on an outpatient or on house-call basis.

Veterinary medical stations make it possible to provide treatment-and-prophylactic services with a visit of specialist to the business entities of different forms of ownership.

The premises of the ambulatory should include:

  • a work office of veterinary medicine professional;
  • a place intended for storage of medicines, biologicals and medical instruments;
  • a sterilization room (a room, in which the sterilization of used materials, instruments and special clothing will be carried out);
  • a place for the registrar;
  • a manege;
  • an operating room (premises intended for carrying out of treatment procedures);
  • a place intended for storage of housekeeping equipment.

For clinics, this list is amended by one more point: an isolator, to put it in other words, a room for sick animals. The premises, in which the animals are kept, must be isolated from other premises and must have a disinfectant pan at the entrance.

Clinics and ambulatories can also have an X-ray room and an ultrasonic diagnosis room.

For the veterinary station, the requirements are somewhat different. It should have:

  • a place for work of specialist;
  • a place for storage of medicines, medical instruments and biologicals;
  • a place for sterilization of materials, instruments and special clothing;
  • a place intended for storage of housekeeping equipment.

As you can see, the main difference is that a clinic or ambulatory necessitates a separate room for some categories, when the veterinary medical station can have only a separate place (that means a part of the room) for them. The other differences in the list are determined by the fact that the station cannot provide services of veterinary medicine, they are provided only on house-call basis.

If you still have any questions or you want to get a high-quality support of the procedure of obtaining a veterinary practice license, you can always contact our lawyers.

The assistance of an experienced lawyer will help to avoid most of the mistakes, to be completely acquainted with the legal requirements and apply them correctly in your activities.


What is the validity period of veterinary practice license?

The veterinary practice license is issued for an unlimited term, but it can be revoked should the client wish so or if there are other grounds for this.

Can I get a license for this type of activity if I do not have the necessary education or I am a student who only gets an education in the specialty “Veterinary Practice”?

In both of the above cases, it is considered that the license applicant does not have the necessary education. Nevertheless, it is possible to obtain a veterinary practice license. In order to do this, you should register a legal entity (enterprise) and hire an employee with the necessary degree of training and a state-recognized diploma.

What should I do if I plan to do laboratory and clinical tests?

In such case, it is necessary to enter into a contract with one of the state laboratories of veterinary medicine (at the location in a certain geographical administrative division or with another accredited laboratory).

Are there any differences between the official period of obtaining a license and the real one?

In accordance with the law, the time period for making a decision on issuance of license, which is also held in practice, is 10 working days. Prior to the submission of application on issuance of license the terms largely depend on the Client: how timely he will provide us with all the necessary documents.
