Information for the Public

Discipline Orders

The College protects and serves the public interest and is committed to sharing pertinent information with licensed members, the public and stakeholders to maintain the public’s trust. One of the College’s many responsibilities is to oversee the professional conduct of Ontario’s veterinarians.  The College receives, investigates and, if required, acts upon complaints made against licensed members.

The College has a legal responsibility to disclose the names of members who have been found guilty of professional misconduct. The outcome of a discipline hearing is public information. The College publishes summaries of Discipline hearings to help inform licensed members and the public about the regulation of the veterinary profession.  These summaries are intended to provide a greater understanding of the issues surrounding professional misconduct and the veterinary profession’s accountability to the public.

  • The outcome of a Discipline case is specific to the particulars of that case. The published summary does not include all of the details of the process or the decision.
  • When the decision of a Discipline Panel results in a condition or limitation on a member’s licence, the Veterinarians Act requires that this be disclosed.  The Panel’s decisions and reasons are not intended to set standards or to be instructive or prescriptive to veterinarians. Decisions are rendered on a case by case basis.
  • Although the publication is not intended to be instructive to veterinarians, the summaries do provide licensed members with an opportunity to reflect on their own practices.

Findings from discipline proceedings since October 1, 2012 are reported below and on the Public Register. Findings from proceedings prior to this date are posted on the Public Register.

To check the record of a veterinarian, review the Public Register which is available through the Find a Veterinarian page. Enter the veterinarian's name, and click on Search. Disciplinary actions, if any, will be indicated at the bottom of the search record.

If you would like a full copy of a decision, please contact the College at 519-824-5600 or 1-800-424-2856 or inquiries@cvo.org and request a copy of a decision by providing the veterinarian’s name and the decision date.
