You will need this registration to practice as a veterinary practitioner. A veterinary practitioner provides:
- diagnosis, medical or surgical treatment of disease or injury in animals
- advice on the health and welfare of animals and public health and safety of animal food products.
You will not need to apply for this registration if you live outside of New South Wales and are already registered as a veterinary practitioner in another state or territory.
You will need provisional registration to practice if you have completed the requirements of a degree in veterinary science but have not yet received a copy of your qualifications. Provisional registration may be given to you when you apply for full registration.
