The Veterinary Services (VS) Regional Offices carry out the VS
Mission by overseeing 41 VS area offices covering the United States
and its territories including ports along the US borders with
Canada and Mexico. VS Regional Offices are separated into Eastern
(ER) and Western (WR) regions roughly along the Mississippi River
(exception MN and LA in ER). Each regional office is managed by a director
and three associate directors, one of whom is responsible for
emergency management and the remaining two directly manage the
Area Offices. The regions oversee animal health issues via regional
epidemiologists managing animal disease programs and import/export
veterinarians responding to live animal and animal product issues.
An administrative officer with support staff manages budget, federal
and state cooperative agreements, GIS, and information technology
for each region. The ER oversees 22 Area Offices covering 28 states,
Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. The WR oversees 19 Area
Offices covering 22 states and the Pacific Territories.

Offices including contact information and hours of operation.
