Here's an article on the recently introduced legislation, The Fairness to Pet Owners Act of 2011. It appears this legislation is designed to frustrate veterinarians and put more money in the pockets of pharmaceutical companies. However, it's not all bad. One point is that veterinarians will not be permitted to charge a fee to write a prescription just because you intend to have the prescription filled somewhere other than the vet's office.
If you have an opinion about the fairness of this legislation, please let us know.
