I am very much against the “Fairness to pet owners act” Requiring a written prescription for every drug dispensed. If a client wishes to get the exact same drug elsewhere we just call it in for them for give them a written prescription. This is a non-issue being pushed by those big pharmacies/retailers trying to grab as much money as possible. If a person complains that their vet will not issue a prescription then take action against that one individual. As usual the government believes that it can fix rare problems with sweeping legislation that will negatively affect the majority that are not a problem in the first place. What about veterinary only prescriptions that will take a few days to get from an online pharmacy, but the animal needs the drug now. These legislation will cause more problems and fix nothing.
