non-dvm to own animal hospital/Clinic in Florida

This answer was rated:

Does anyone know where I could go (website?) to find a list of States that do & do not allow non-dvm to own animal hospital/Clinic. I'm mostly interested in (Florida )but all states would be great.
Thank you..

Good morning,


According to Florida Administrative Code, Chapter 474.215, you do not have to be a dvm to own a clinic. Any individual or corporation may do so, however, each establishment must have a licensed veterinarian responsible for the management of the establishment.


Here is the website for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations that refers to Veterinary Medicine.


Thank you for choosing JustAnswer.
