There has been a THIRD public hearing scheduled for the “Vet Bill”-Senate Bill S. 687 on Tuesday at June 16th at 10am Gressette Bldg Room 308
PLEASE ATTEND!!!!! You do not have to speak to have your voice be heard. The presence of those in the room who oppose can make a very powerful, visual statement!
PET OWNERS …your choice of affordable veterinary care is being threatened!
The South Carolina Veterinary Association (SCVA) wants to prohibit you from seeking affordable care from non-profits by restricting services offered by non-profit clinics. It would PROHIBIT ANYONE ABOVE POVERTY LEVEL from using selected low cost services offered by non-profits.
The (SCVA) wants to limit your choice of veterinary care by eliminating competition, despite the fact that non-profits have been responsible for a reduction of 31% in the euthanasia rate in the last 5 years.
According to the 2015 Poverty Guidelines (HHS), 1 person would have to make less than minimum wage to qualify. So, a person making minimum wage (less than $16,150) would have to take their pet to a private practice clinic.
Please attend and show your support for free choice and AFFORDABLE veterinary care. Oppose government intrusion and price protection in veterinary care.
