OPS - About

  • OPS is a web-based system that allows US practicing veterinarians to obtain livestock entry permits for moving livestock into Colorado and is available when needed. (Currently we will still need Veterinarians outside the United States to call the State Veterinarian's Office as foreign permits require additional processes.)
  • US Veterinarians will be required to register before they are able to access the site and create new livestock entry permits. Registration can be achieved on the OPS Website.
