A recent investigation by WSYX ABC 6 found that the Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board which regulates the states approximately 4,000 veterinarians “doesn’t employ a single investigator. Instead, it pays the Department of Agriculture to investigate complaints” according to ABC 6.
In addition, the Board is prohibited from conducting unannounced site visits unless a consumer complaint is filed. A 5-day notice is required by the Board in order to conduct a site inspection.
