To begin working as a veterinarian in Hartford, a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM or VMD) degree is required, as well as admittance into a professional DVM/VMD program and a state license. This requires years of education and clinicals before you can begin your career as a veterinarian. Once you have completed all state requirements, you are then a licensed veterinarian and can begin caring for sick and injured animals.
You Could Lose Your License
In order to continue on your career path as a veterinarian, you must maintain the proper licensure. The Connecticut State Board of Veterinary Medicine monitors all licenses and has the power to revoke any they see fit. Some reasons the Board may revoke a license are:
Animal cruelty. This may include mistreatment or improper care.
Employment fraud. The proper certifications, degrees, and licenses, are required when administering animal care. Falsifying or misrepresenting your qualifications could revoke your license completely.
Felony conviction. As a veterinarian you work closely with the public. If you are convicted of a felony, the Board can consider the public safety and revoke your license.
