The Federal Trade Commission hosted a Pet Medications Workshop in Washington DC last month to examine the ways pet medications are distributed to consumers.  I had originally been asked to attend on behalf of APAW and take part in a panel discussion, but was unable to due to the incredible industry response and lack of space.

I was looking forward to sharing our views about the challenges that many of us have faced when our pets require costly medication to stay healthy, and to expressing the opinion that we deserve access to more affordable options!  Discussions like these are an ideal setting to emphasize the importance of this issue to pet owners in the US.
