The Office of the State Veterinarian (OSV) is part of the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation’s Division of Environmental Health. It is responsible for carrying out a wide variety of programs protective of both animal and human health, which in turn safeguards the health and food capacity of Alaska’s livestock, reindeer, and poultry, and prevents the transmission of animal disease to humans.
