Remove Medical Release Requirement For Animal Chiropractic

Concerning the removal of the requirement that licensed chiropractors who are registered to perform animal chiropractic obtain a veterinary medical clearance by a licensed veterinarian before performing an act that falls within an animal chiropractor's scope of practice on an animal patient.
Session:
2017 Regular Session

Under current law, a licensed chiropractor, whether or not he or she is registered with the state board of chiropractic examiners to perform animal chiropractic, must obtain a veterinary medical clearance from a licensed veterinarian before performing an act that falls within the chiropractor's scope of practice on an animal patient. The bill removes the veterinary medical clearance requirement for chiropractors who are registered with the state board as animal chiropractors. A licensed chiropractor who is registered as an animal chiropractor and performs animal chiropractic on an animal patient is encouraged, in a timely manner, to consult with a veterinarian treating the animal patient.
