Information for Veterinarians

The participation of veterinarians is a critical component of Canine Care Certified. By evaluating wellness and medical care, veterinarians are protecting the welfare of breeding dogs and their puppies as well as the interests of both breeders and consumers.

Forms and Resources

Canine Care Certified breeders must work with their attending veterinarian to demonstrate that they are meeting the rigorous standards set forth by the program. For a breeder to move forward in the certification process, their veterinarian must complete and submit the Veterinary Care Form. Breeders are encouraged to respect their veterinarian’s time, discuss fee structure, and schedule an appointment to review any documents at convenient times for the practice. If you would like to fill out the form online, please email and include the breeder and kennel name you are assisting.

The Veterinary Care Form may be mailed or faxed to:
