Bill Caption

Relating to the regulation of equine dentistry. 

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

Currently, only veterinarians or licensed equine dental providers performing under the supervision of a veterinarian may practice equine dentistry in the state.

SB 814 would allow a student of an equine dental provider certification program, who is completing the practical requirements of the program and performs under direct supervision of a veterinarian, to practice equine dentistry.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action supports SB 814 because it loosens the overly restrictive requirements regarding who is authorized to practice equine dentistry, a result that promotes limited government.
