Request for Comments and Announcement of Workshop on Pet Medications Issues, Project No. P121201
As a long time owner of dogs, I am in favor of the bill pending in Congress (H.R. 1406, the Fairness to Pet Owners Act) that would require veterinarians to write prescriptions for all pet drugs, so owners can take them elsewhere and shop around for better prices if they want. This way of doing business is a closed monopoly. I have been to numerous vets in different states and not one has ever given me a written prescription.
