Spotlight on Virginia: Only 20% of Complaints Against Vets Result in Violation Findings

Given our focus on a Virginia case today, I thought it would be informative to post some information about the Virginia Veterinary Board.

According to minutes of the Board's 5/14/2008 meeting, from July 1, 2007 though April 2008 the Virginia Veterinary Board closed 183 cases, only 36 of which resulted in findings of violation. Another way to look at that is: 80% of all complaints filed against vets in the state of Virginia are dismissed.
