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

My comments will be brief and simple. If you are not willing to make licensed pharmicist go back to school for Veterinary Medicine then they have no business filling prescriptions for animals. If it is not legal for me to fill a prescription for a human without proper schooling in human medicine then the same rule most definately should hold true for the opposite. Just last week I had a human pharmacist tell an animal owner to do something that may have potentially costed the life of the animal if the owner had listened. Animals are not people. The drugs we use are not the same. The interactions are not the same. They should not be treated the same.
