    Freeze branding is allowed in NY for cattle and horses.  The NYS Dept of Ag & Markets maintains a brand registry.  If you wish to register a brand you can send your design to our office at the following address:

    NYS Dept. of Agriculture and Markets
    Division of Animal Industry
    10B Airline Drive
    Albany, NY 12235

    We will compare to our registry and will register it if it is unique.  Since it is not the diagnosis and treatment of disease, branding is not considered veterinary practice.  You may need a veterinarian if tranquilization is necessary.
