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

I would ask that Congress not pass the HR 1406 - the Fairness to Pet owners Act. I am a single practioner in a small animal practice. My clients already have the ability to fill their prescriptions from a variety of off-site pharmacies. This bill will not change this ability, but will be an unfair burden on myself and my staff due to the additional time required to write and verify prescriptions. This additional time will either take myself and my staff away from activities that benefit my clients or patients or increase their costs if I need to hire additional staff. Although this act "sounds good" it is most likely going to negatively impact my patients. I, my staff and my clients are all trying to properly care for thier patients in difficult finacial times. Please don't make our jobs harder. Please do not pass this bill. Sincerely, Margaret McIsaac, DVM
