Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Under the VA law, according to the American Veterinary Association, "VTs performing acts relating to maintenance of the health of or treatment of any animal require immediate and direct supervision and control of a veterinarian. In addition, the Board of Veterinary Medicine may register equine dental technicians under regulation of the Board. Permissible duties are planing or leveling of equine teeth using nonmotorized hand tools for routine dental maintenance, or planing or leveling using motorized tools, or the extraction of wolf teeth under the direct supervision of a veterinarian. No equine dental technician may administer any sedative, tranquilizer, analgesic, prescription medication, or drug.
Thus, as insulin is a prescription medication, a non-vet cannot give the shots in VA.
