this law is not keeping with the small vet hospital to carry on an adeguate revenue based on years and years of doing practice as usual I have been opposed to writing any script for a person if I carry that drug what Wal mart and all the others are doing is using my long years of education and my dea liscence to make money off of me.... I will not agree to this and this is an unfair practice if the client can obtain the drug without my script then so be it however this is an ethical issue that goes very deep when human docs write scripts it is becuase they do not carry the drugs and look at what they charge for an office visit $375 at least VEts cannot do this so they make up the revenue with selling prouct waht this will do is drive forth services and the price of vet medicine will sky rocket and I know the public will suffer and have to pay these changes to off set the faulty actions of these large conglomerates please unsdestand this will be come a snowball effect and the only ones that will lose is the consumer because we as professionals will not take this sitting down remember human med has thrd party payment please tread lightly and not pass this bill please do not let a large business dictate the public and vets fate that is communism
