About the Fairness to Pet Owners Act

The Fairness to Pet Owners Act is a Congressional bill that will make pet medications more affordable for pet owners. The law protects pet owners and ensures all pet owners have a choice – a choice on when and where to fill and pay for their pet’s prescriptions, just like people do for human prescriptions.

The Fairness to Pet Owners Act will ensure the following:

  • Ensure pet prescriptions will be provided automatically, just like human prescriptions
  • Eliminate prescription release fees charged by some veterinary clinics – these fees reduce the savings from buying for less at another licensed pharmacy
  • Eliminate delays and misleading legal releases that some veterinary clinics ask pet owners to sign prior to providing a pet’s prescriptions
