Request for Comments and Announcement of Workshop on Pet Medications Issues, Project No. P121201

As a longtime owner of dogs and cats, I support reforming the way that prescriptions for pet medications and medical supplies typically are filled to promote greater competition among drug suppliers and offer lower cost options to consumers, the majority of whom do not carry pet insurance and pay a premium obtaining medications through their vet's dispensary. I would use a mail order pharmacy for non-emergency medications if it the choice was available to me by virtue of having a paper prescription.
