I feel this legislation would be redundant as our clients can already request a written prescription if they desire for the products available on the human market. There are numerous products that are NOT avaiable in other markets also. The cost and record keeping for this type of legislation would be prohibitive for the Veterinary hospital also. Many of our medications recquire frequent monitoring that would become impossible if left in the hands of other suppliers. The human pharmacist is totally uneducated and not prepared for answering questions to control the proper usage of these medications in other species. The pet and the client would be the loser in this case.
