The VBMA seeks to provide animal owners, farmers, and veterinarians with some standard of competency by which to choose a veterinary herbalist. In order to be certified by VBMA, the herbalist must pass a competency examination with a grade of 75%.  In addition, the herbalist must submit and have accepted 3 case reports that are publication quality. Veterinarians certified by VBMA will earn the title "Certified Veterinary Herbalist" (CVH).  Non-veterinary herbalists will earn the title "Certified Veterinary Herbalism Educator" (CVHE).

Veterinary herbalists who are certified by VBMA are automatically eligible for membership in the American College of Veterinary Herbalists, earning the title Dipl. ACVH.
