Explanation: The local city veterinarian, maybe. There are a lot of hits on Google. The Amts part indicates that the person has an official status. In the US that would be someone with an official position in city or county government. Hope this helps.

"Private practitioners were first used to perform regulatory work in 1907 when a large number of horses were exported to Canada. As there were inadequate numbers of Federal veterinarians to meet these demands, the Canadian government agreed to accept health inspections and certifications performed by private practitioners qualified by the Bureau of Animal Industry (now APHIS). The services of practicing veterinarians were used again in 1917 when the Tuberculosis Eradication program was established. However, the accreditation program officially began in 1921, when USDA, Bureau of Animal Industry, administered the first accreditation examination to certify practitioners as representatives of the Federal government.
USDA established the veterinary accreditation program so private practitioners could assist Federal veterinarians in controlling animal diseases. Today, accredited veterinarians and State animal health officials work cooperatively in the NVAP.
On November 23, 1992, APHIS established accreditation on a national basis rather than on a State-by-State basis. Creating this national system has ensured enough accredited veterinarians are available across the country. The national system also standardized the accreditation procedures and requirements allowing for more uniform administration of the program.
Accredited veterinarians are the backbone of U.S. regulatory programs for livestock and poultry diseases. The responsibilities of an accredited veterinarian are extraordinary. In fact, the United States depends extensively upon the accredited veterinarian for official functions, e.g., inspecting, testing, and certifying animals. More than 80 percent of all U.S. veterinarians are accredited."
