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

The proposal addressed by this workshop involving "written, portable prescriptions that [pet owners] can fill wherever they choose" is absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary. Besides the obvious potential health risks to the pet which don't even need to be explained, this proposal threatens the livelihood of every independently owned veterinary facility whos dispensaries provide a considerable portion of their income. If the proposed measures were taken it would only benefit a select few whos obvious ignorance and selfishness has no place in our beloved profession.
