Fairness to Pet Owners Act of 2011 (H.R. 1406)

September 19, 2011

When your pet needs medications, should you have a right to a copy of the prescription so you can shop around for the best price and convenience?

Despite the pressures we face in this economy, consumers have no right under federal law to receive a copy of their own pets’ prescriptions.

Fortunately, Representatives Jim Matheson of Utah, and Lee Terry of Nebraska have introduced legislation to help give consumers the freedom to choose where they buy medicines for their pets.

Their Fairness to Pet Owners Act of 2011 (H.R. 1406), simply requires veterinarians to give pet owners a copy of their own pets’ prescriptions – just like consumers automatically get copies of prescriptions for their own medication, eyeglasses and contact lenses.

Allowing pet owners the freedom to choose where they buy the medicines for their pets will bring lower prices, more convenience and make it more likely pets will receive the care and medicines they need.

So, please Click Here to tell your elected officials to support your freedom to choose where you purchase pet medications!
