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

H.R. 1406 is an example of redundant and wasteful legislation. As a veterinarian for 19 years and practice owner, I have several layers of regulations to allow me to dispense medications to my patients. This bill would increase the difficulties in dispensing medications, such as administrative costs, discourse and overall result in higher costs to the consumer. Veterinarians are small business owners and are trying to keep their costs down and continue offering the best care for their patients. This bill is unnecessary and only facilitates the large pharmaceutical companies aims. I oppose H. R. 1406.
