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

To Whom It May Concern: Additional regulations and requirements regarding pet prescriptions can actually end up costing consumers more in the long run. In my practice, I already help my clients obtain lowest cost medications in various ways, and veterinarians who don't do this often lose clients. People are already pretty knowledgeable about on-line pharmacies, etc. To require veterinarians to write out prescriptions and discuss all the options every time will use time that someone has to pay for. This is an unnecessary and burdensome idea. I hope it does not come to pass.
