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

To Whom it may concern: The biggest problem I see with the passing of this act is how it could harm the animals. I far as I know pharmacists do not learn all the different medications that are used in Veterinary medicine. There are very different side effects and dosages in the drugs that are used in veterinary medicine and even with the human medication that can be used in animals. There are even various medications that cannot be used in different species without detrimental effects. If the pharmacists start giving advise on medications to be used in animals then are they going to be responsible if the advise they give is detrimental. I am also concerned that owners will get conflicting advise and that the animal will either suffer or not be treated. Thank you, Susan Denissen DVM
